Sarah Godwin


Sarah graduated from Auburn University with a BS in Computer Science. Upon graduation, she spent two years in East Asia studying the language and culture while engaging and journeying spiritually with the students around her. God worked through her time overseas to deepen her relationship with Him through Jesus while opening her eyes to the world, giving her a better understanding of different faith backgrounds and cultural contexts. Since 2009, Sarah has served in Boston with Bridges International, a ministry of CRU/Agape that aims to specifically serve international students studying in the U.S. Sarah loves cities, watching college football, cooking, reading, running, traveling, and laughing.
