Tim Goodwin - Associate Pastor Farmingdale
My name is Tim Goodwin, and I serve as one of the pastors here at Crossroads. My primary role is to maintain various ministry programs at Farmingdale, and oversee the general administration of Crossroads Church. My wife Sydney and I are excited about what God is doing in and around Long Island. It is my hope to see people put their faith and trust in Lord Jesus Christ. True satisfaction is only found in Christ.
Sydney and I were married in December 2014, and have loved every bit of it! I was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and felt God call me to pastoral ministry in high school. I graduated with a B.S. in History and Christian Ministry from Dallas Baptist University, and went on to teach history and coach soccer at San Antonio Christian School. We moved to New York City in July of 2015, so that she could pursue musical theatre. I started working at The Geneva School of Manhattan in August 2015 as a Third Grade Teacher. In December of 2016, the Lord called us to Crossroads. So, we moved out to Long Island in January of 2017, and feel so blessed to be apart of what God is doing here. The Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to both teach and be apart of church ministry! I am also a student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity, 2018).
