Sam Ingrassia was pursuing his engineering studies at University of Missouri – Rolla when the powerful life and testimony of a dying fraternity brother led him to Christ. Following this life change, Sam felt called into ministry, and chose to pursue degrees at Florida Bible College and Dallas Theological Seminary.
He served on the pastoral staff at Jacksonville Chapel in Lincoln Park, N.J., during which time Sam became passionate about mission work. He had many opportunities to lead trips to Haiti and Mexico, which laid the foundation for his shift into full-time missions ministry with e3 Partners.
Sam has served as a church planter with e3 Partners since 1992. During his time with the ministry, he has led evangelism/church planting teams and leadership development conferences to Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Haiti, Moldova, Paraguay, Romania, Russia, Sicily and Venezuela. He previously worked as Strategy Coordinator for e3 Romania but is now focusing his full efforts on e3 Colombia. Sam is also currently a teaching member of e3 University.
Sam’s message will resonate with college students and those interested in missions, particularly church planting. He is one of the most popular and requested pastoral speakers within the ministry.
He and his wife, Vicki, have been married for 36 years and have three daughters, Christina, Nicole and Stephanie. Vicki is also on associate staff with e3 Partners, serving side-by-side in the field ministry and as a leader in the e3 Prayer Ministry.
