Pastor Sam Morgan
Pastor of Care Ministries

Sam was born and raised in San Francisco along with his four sisters.  He is a sexagenarian, a member of the “Husband’s Club” (an active participant with “the marriage experience and experiment” for more than three decades) and a member of the “Father’s Club” (he and his wife, Elaine, have three adult children).


Sam is happily retired from civil service employment, is an unashamed disciple of Christ, and joyfully gives his “attention to prayer and the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4).  He is a graduate of Liberty University (John W. Rawlings School of Divinity, Master of Arts and Master of Divinity) and was invited to join the Redwood Chapel pastoral staff in 2014 as the Pastor of Care Ministries.


Sam’s hobbies and interest include culinary activities, photography, physical fitness, group therapy (firearms training), reading, traveling, et. al.  His rules of life include one’s actions and one’s choices have consequences; one is responsible for one’s actions; and one reaps what one sows, one reaps later than one sows, and one reaps more than one sows.
