Sam Ely


I have been a member of Good Shepherd since 2019. During this period, I have had the pleasure of being a youth leader in our High School Ministry and an audio/visual volunteer for Contemporary Worship Services in the Worship Center.

I see and feel God's presence in this church, specifically in our youth who are taking ownership of their own faith and the faith of others. These individuals will be the leaders of tomorrow's church, so it’s such a blessing to see so many of our youth active in all ministries within today's church.

A fun fact about me is that I am a recent graduate from the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, where I attained a Master’s in Industrial Distribution.

I am the son of an immigrant and the husband to a woman in ministry. I care about youth advocacy and social equity. I have genuine confidence in the discernment process, and I am excited to see what God has in store for this church and for His people.
