Rus Goodwin

Pastoral Care Minister

Ministry Role & Responsibility: 

As the Pastoral Care Minister, I have a love for people and walking alongside them, seeking to point them to see the presence of the Father in all circumstances and seasons of life. Together, we can seek to make sure no one in our faith family goes un-prayed for, untouched, unvisited, or unappreciated.

About Me: 

My wife, Beverly, and I have been married since 1982. We have 2 grown sons: Andrew and Benjamin. Andrew and our daughter-in-law Haley have given us 2 beautiful grandchildren: Rosales (Rosie) and Judah. I am a graduate of Samford University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. My hobbies include caring for my lawn and interior painting.

On Staff Since: April 2024

Member Of Brook Hills Since: May 2014

Favorite Scripture:

"Whom have I in heaven but You; and I desire no one on earth as much as You"

-Psalm 73:25

Interesting Fact: I spent a week in NYC the year after 911 at a Prayer Station set up near Ground Zero, and have ridden an elephant through the jungle during the 2 weeks I spent in Thailand doing relief work after the Tsunami.
