Marshall arrives to Ambassador following an extended season of family transition back to the United States after being based in Jerusalem, Israel from 2008-2017. During that time, Marshall and Babs had served as International Workers for The Christian & Missionary Alliance (The C&MA) on the Israel & Palestinian Territories Field in a variety of roles but had most recently led that team through a time of transition and structural redefinition.
Following this overseas experience and his return to the States, Marshall completed an M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Crown College, which pairs with his earlier M.A. in Intercultural Studies from Grace College & Seminary, which lend balance to his undergraduate degree from LeTourneau University where he majored in Aerospace Science.
Marshall, Babs and Russell are actively involved in lay ministry within their home church, Westview Alliance Church, in Fort Wayne. Russell is in 8th grade at Blackhawk Middle School and Babs has opened her own family photography and design business (www.meandgrace.com). Additionally, the family accepts a number of invitations per year to promote international ministry, especially as related to the work in Israel and the Palestinian Territories and Marshall is occasionally called upon for pulpit supply in a few nearby churches.
