Sam and Angie Woods pastor our Chapelhill Dunwoody Location. Sam has been a Christian for as long as he can remember, but losing his father to cancer when he was a teenager left him with doubts and questions about his faith. Something changed in college. He realized it was time to strengthen his relationship with God and work through the pain of real loss. What emerged was a real relationship with Jesus that, over time, changed Sam’s heart from the inside out. After receiving his B.A. in Youth Ministry from Oral Roberts University, he joined the ministry staff at Church on the Move in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He served as the Oneighty youth pastor for ten years and as an Executive Pastor overseeing Kids and Youth programs across four local churches for 3 Years.
Angie grew up in a creative and ministry-focused family that landed in Tulsa, Oklahoma when she was just a kid. She joined the ministry staff at Church on the Move and served in her local church community for 20+ years, mostly in the area of Creative Arts and Communications. She contributed and led in various ways, including youth ministry, video production, storytelling, conferences for training Christian leaders, evangelistic events, executive leadership, and Bible teaching.
Although Sam and Angie served in the same local church, they lived in different ministry worlds! God began stirring in them a new desire to stand together in pastoral ministry in the next season of life. Through much prayer and slow journeying with Jesus, they responded to our invitation to join the efforts of Chapelhill Church and moved to Atlanta in 2019! Today, they lead a diverse group of people, emphasizing discipleship and biblical community. Sam and Angie are both graduates from Western Seminary with Masters of Arts Degrees in Biblical Leadership. They are passionate about leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus.
Sam and Angie have been married since 2002 and parent two amazing chicks, Amelia and Ruby. When we asked what they value, Sam responded, “We value family and community relationships, a healthy rhythm of life, lifelong learning, and good ‘ole fashioned fun!” They enjoy sharing the table with family and friends, books, a good cup of coffee, the beach, and going to Disney World.
