Interview with Jeff Marshall


Interview with Jeff Marshall

An interview with Secretary-Treasurer Jeff Marshall

What do you think has prepared you the most for this new step?

I think it’s been a combination of my ministry experience of thirty-four years, which included planting New Day Assembly of God. Previous to that I was a school administrator for twelve years, and served as presbyter of the Southwest Metro section in Pittsburgh.

How would you describe your leadership style?

I’ve always believed in being a servant leader, recognizing what needs done and doing it, whatever the task, nothing is too small or too big. I like to work as a team. I believe in working with people instead of over people.

What are your core values?

My core values? First, my personal relationship with Christ.

Family is so very important to me. I love being a husband, a father and especially a grandfather. I am a husband to Cathy, the father of four children (Katie, Micah, Eden and Shuyler) and a grandfather to Selah and Gideon. “And if I would have known being a grandfather was so much fun, I woulda’ did it first.” That’s actually a quote from Robert Owen, but I use it all the time.

What are you looking forward to the most with your new position?

Supporting Pastor Don in his leadership and being available to pastors and churches to help as much as I can with credentials and transitions. When I was a presbyter that’s one thing that I always enjoyed…working with pastors. That’s what I’m looking forward to the most.

What is a message that you hope to inspire leaders and churches with?

I’m Pentecostal – that’s my DNA and I believe in it. I trust in the Spirit of God to lead me and guide me. I believe that if you look in the New Testament, the reason the church grew was because of the power of the Holy Spirit; that’s what’s going to make the church grow again.
