former Minister for Women's Ministry, Downtown
Samm is our former Minister for Women's Ministry, Downtown.
Samm became a Christian when her father shared from Evangelism Explosion when she was 6 years old. She lived as a spiritual baby (in ways still bound by the law) in fear, before being discipled and taught to study the Word for three years in college through Campus Outreach.
Samm met her husband, Paul, their freshman year of college. They each served on staff with Campus Outreach in Greenville, South Carolina, for several years before moving to be a part of pioneering Campus Outreach Minneapolis in 2003. Paul & Samm served with Campus Outreach at the University of Minnesota, where they began dating and then got married in 2006.
Samm currently oversees the female Campus Outreach staff as the Regional Women’s Director and provides shepherding and strategic oversight to CO’s women’s ministry.
The Poteats have two daughters, Maddux (2008) and Sophie (2010).
