Sam and Martha Margaret Cotten


Sam and Martha Margaret Cotten became missionary candidates with World Witness in 2017 to become part of the Mobile Theological Training Team (MT3), primarily in Africa.  Their vision is to see pastors and church leaders established in Reformed teaching in order to equip the church as it grows, particularly in its struggle with paganism and Islam.  Sam has 12 years of pastoral experience in the United States.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Erskine College and a Master of Old Testament from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.  He plans to pursue a Master of Theology degree.

Martha Margaret has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Studies from Erskine College and is pursuing a Master of Arts in Christian Thought from Gordon-Conwell.  The Cottens have four children: Ethan, Gloria-Noelle, Joel, and Andrew (pictured L-R).  Currently, the Cotten family is at Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in Rock Hill, SC.
