Our missionaries have dedicated their lives to serving others on behalf of Jesus Christ. Each one serves in their unique gifts and passions. Together our team ministers to the poor, widows, orphans, addicted, homeless, formerly incarcerated and underprivileged. Here is a short bio on each one.
Dr. Terry Goodwin is the founder and Executive Director of Sun Ministries. He and his wife, Suzette, have raised 5 children together. As missionaries to America, they find themselves ministering together in one of the poorest and most devastated areas of North St. Louis.
Mark and Stephanie got married in November of 2021. Together, they look forward to seeing the ministry God has designed for them. Both are passionate about teaching and training leaders young and old. They are currently based out of St. Louis, but spend a good amount of time traveling and teaching new disciples around the country and the world.
Jason and Amy met on the mission. They were both volunteering for Sun Ministries. Amy taught him to tuckpoint and Jason taught her the piano. They started working together with a gardening project, and have been involved in most aspects of the ministry together since. They share a passion to help people become what God made them to be. They have 4 children (Josie, Evan, Lena, and Sparrow) and desire to help families homeschool on the mission. Jason is vice chairman of the Board of Directors of Sun Ministries. He helps manage our maintenance services, and guides our missionary and volunteer development. They both assist in coaching various trainings. They are raising their family in the Hyde Park neighborhood of north St. Louis, MO.
This is the Sanford family and they primarily minister in North St. Louis city as missionaries with Sun Ministries. Mark and Jessica are parents to Josiah (age 4) and Emma (age 1), and also have a German Shepherd named Bear. Mark currently directs Sun Ministries Construction Services, serves as a board member, and manages much of the daily schedule in North St. Louis city. Jessica devotes herself to discipleship with multiple people while watching the kids and keeping a home during the day. Mark and Jessica are also learning the language of Arabic in order to reach the nations with the Gospel of Jesus.
Chris and Nicole got married in October 2021. They are missionaries, both working in the administrative side of Sun Ministries. Chris is the Administrative Director by overseeing many administrative responsibilities, handles the book keeping, and serves on the Board of Directors. Nicole coordinates all of our trainings (both in person and virtual), manages our website and mobile app, and assists in several other administrative areas.
They have two daughters, Madelyn & Aubrey. Their family ministers in the St. Louis location together. Family is very dear to God's heart and so it is their hope that the girls will grow to be Godly women, firm in their faith, and instrumental in building the Kingdom of God. Despite whatever has happened in our past, they want to help people see the unconditional love that God has for us and the lengths He will go to reach us.
My name is Hannah Dewey! I’m married to my sweet husband, Adam, and we have three amazing kiddos- Eve, Adalia, and Abraham. I was introduced to Sun Ministries in November of 2019 and began truly understanding the Gospel of the Kingdom and being discipled in June of 2020. I recently came on board as a volunteer missionary. I am part of the Church@ East Grand Forks and am serving the community there. I will be helping out with finding, writing, and editing grants- and doing whatever else God calls me to as well!
Meet the Diller Family: Zachariah, Hannah, Hadassah, Zadok, Jude, and Elia. They recently joined Sun Ministries in 2021. They live and serve in Rapid City, SD. Zachariah and Hannah met in college where after their first (3 hour) conversation both walked away thinking they would probably get married. They are passionate about seeing God’s kingdom come and raising their children with a kingdom mindset. They’re excited to see how God will use them to move in their community.
