Pastor Marcus started his ministry career serving as the middle school intern at Bethany Baptist Church from 2010-2012 in Salem, Oregon. Upon graduating from Corban University in 2012, he received his bachelors in Student and Family Ministry and became the Pastor of Student Ministry at First Baptist Church in Newport, Oregon. In the fall of 2019, he started pursuing his Masters in Pastoral Leadership through Western Seminary in Portland, OR. Pastor Marcus was affirmed as the Pastor of Administration at Christ Fellowship in November of 2020.
At Christ Fellowship he oversees the Ministry Action Teams (MAT's), leads Call to Worship, teaches membership classes, is responsible for assimilating new attenders into the overall family of the church, and provides support for the elder team.
His desire in ministry is to encourage and equip each believer to thoroughly enjoy and pursue Christ. Surfacing new gifts and intentionally positioning individuals to contribute to the overall health of the Church is another aspect that thrills Pastor Marcus' heart.
His hobbies include playing basketball, hiking/backpacking, going to the park with his family, wrestling with his kids, soaking in a good book or movie, and drinking a great cup of coffee.
Pastor Marcus has been married to his wonderful wife Teanna for just over eight years and they have three children: Everly, Oliver, and Avery.
