Joe and Sharon Goodman

Joe & Sharon Goodman

New Tribes Mission - Sanford, Florida, USA

Joe and Sharon Goodman, along with their four children, served in the country of Panama among the Kuna Indians where they translated the New Testament and Bible lessons into the Kuna language.

Shortly after the distribution of the New Testament, the Goodmans, along with other missionaries in Panama’s Darien Province, were forced to evacuate their mission stations due to the increased threat of guerrilla insurgents.

The Goodmans returned to the US in 2003 and began a new ministry with New Tribes Mission. They are now serving at the NTM USA Home Office in Sanford, FL where Joe is Director Member Care and Sharon is his Executive Assistant.

New Tribes Mission - Sanford, Florida, USA

Regina Rodman has served in the New Tribes Mission communications department in Sanford, Florida since 2008, keeping her hands busy with video editing and production, radio programs and websites. The stories told by these mediums inspire Christians to help transform the lives of more than 2,500 people groups throughout the world who would otherwise have no access to the Gospel.

Videos are used by missionaries, representatives and mission leaders, and are available at and on Facebook. Many videos are translated into languages such as Spanish and Norwegian for New Tribes’ international partners. Videos may feature an area of NTM such as the Wayumi retreat or Aviation ministry, or they may take viewers deep into the jungle to witness how a person’s life can be transformed by the Good News of Jesus Christ.

The Mankins

Chad & Janeene Mankins

New Tribes Mission - Papua New Guinea

Chad and Janeene grew up as the children of missionaries in Central and South America and both trusted Christ for their salvation as young children. They currently serve with New Tribes Mission and have been working among a remote people group, the Tobo, in Papua New Guinea since 2002.

In 2007, an indigenous New Testament church was born after the Mankins and their coworkers taught evangelistic Bible lessons over a three-month period in the local language for the very first time. Their mission is to translate the Scriptures into the local language, to teach literacy, to disciple and to equip local believers to continue the ministry into other area villages.
