Michael Goodson

Michael is our newest team member! Not to brag, but he was hand-picked by our president Charlie himself. For the past ten years, Michael has been an energetic force in the nonprofit world. Led by his desire to serve, he fits right in here at ChurchWest. He previously served as a program director and community resource coordinator for THINK Together, a nonprofit that impacts the underserved communities throughout California. Michael’s a social butterfly and is gifted in building meaningful, long-lasting relationships. (Seriously, call him up to chat, and next thing you know you’re best friends.) As a product of a Christian family and education, Michael is passionate about serving ministries, schools, and faith-based organizations.

Outside of work, Michael spends much of his time training, coaching, and competing in Jiu-jitsu. An accomplished martial artist, but a rather unaccomplished vocalist, you can also catch Michael humming lines from Hamilton each morning (we feel sorry for his office mate). When he’s not training or humming, he’s probably hanging out with family, gaming with friends, or trying new food spots in town. Michael’s spirit of optimism inspires us, as in 2019 he was struck by a car while riding his motorcycle. He shares that broken bones and deep wounds were not enough to dim the light God has set before him. After a dozen surgeries and a lengthy recovery, that same light is what led him to our ChurchWest team. He looks forward to serving ministries through insurance, in case they ever face tragedy as he did.
