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.
Mark and Jessica are missionaries with Sun Ministries that minister among the Osage and Cherokee reservations in northeastern Oklahoma. They are parents to Josiah and Emma with another baby on the way. Mark and Jessica have been influential in ministering to those struggling with drug addiction, the disabled and those less fortunate in the community. Mark also rehabs property for the ministry. Jessica devotes herself to discipleship with multiple people, while watching and educating the kids and keeping a home during the day. Mark and Jessica have a passion to see people's lives transformed by encountering 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.
