Marcus first felt God's call to ministry when he was 15 years old. Throughout his time in High School and College, God continued to reaffirm that calling in amazing ways. At the age of 23, Marcus was called to serve as the Pastor to Students at Calvary Baptist Church in McAllen, Texas. Nine years later, he is still on staff at Calvary and oversees discipleship ministry to students & young adults. Marcus has a passion to strengthen parents as they disciple their children and loves to pour into young couples as they prepare for marriage. He also loves being part of a church family that teaches children through adults to engage in God's mission locally and globally and has led teams to several countries around the world.
Marcus has been married to his wonderful wife Hannah for 11 years. They have two daughters (Bethany & Lydia) and are expecting their third child in April 2018! Marcus and Hannah love serving the local church together and have been active foster parents for two years.
He is most grateful for the mercy and grace of God through Jesus Christ and believes that the Gospel brings hope, life & transformation to every family across the world!
