Joel and Samantha Bouwers
The Holy Spirit is at work through RCA Global Mission in ministries around the world, but there are not always resources to capture those stories on film and in writing, bearing witness to God’s work.
God has called Joel and Sam Bouwers to meet that need. Joel is a professional videographer, and Sam has training as a journalist and researcher. Together, they are uniquely equipped to travel and tell the stories of how God is transforming lives. They also share the gospel in the communities they visit. They work in partnership with the RCA’s Communication and Production Services team.
When they are not traveling, the Bouwerses live in Coralville, Iowa, where they attend New Life Community Church (RCA).
During their time as volunteers, the Bouwerses’ ministry is taking them to South Africa, Brazil, Kenya, Israel/Palestine, India, and Nicaragua. Below, learn more about the ministries and missionaries that Joel and Sam are partnering with.
South Africa: Botshabelo
Kenya: Pokot Project
