Goodwin, Sam & Lizzie

Serving in Global | Acct # 12821


Sam grew up in Ohio and South Carolina. He became a believer as a child. After graduating from college, Sam worked in the computer field as a software developer, and later attended seminary. During his time at seminary Sam felt the call to cross-cultural ministry, and after earning his M.Div. at Columbia International University he was ordained in the PCA.

Lizzie grew up in Germany, the daughter of church-planting missionaries, and is a native, fluent German speaker. She attended CIU for her undergraduate studies and later obtained her master’s degree in Germanistics from the University of South Carolina.

Sam and Lizzie married in 2004 and began pursuing missions as a couple. In 2012 they arrived in Munich and partnered with a variety of German church planters over the next 10 years, helping to establish and grow churches in Munich. They and their three daughters engaged in active lifestyle evangelism and outreach, using their home and family as their ministry base.

Currently Sam and Lizzie are in the U.S. for a time of transition as they help their oldest two daughters finish high school. Based in Columbia, S.C., they are working for MTW’s Global Member Care Department, as well as serving as coordinators for Member Care North America, serving missionaries working with Native and Indigenous Peoples.
