Leadership & Staff
Pastor Marty Martin grew up in a non-Christian home, but came to faith in Christ as a teenager. Upon graduating from Clemson University with a BS in Computer Engineering, Marty worked in that field for several years while being spiritually nourished in the local church. During that time, it became increasingly clear that he was being called into pastoral ministry; so in 1991 he began studies at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis where he completed a Masters of Divinity in 1995. Marty initially served a small rural congregation for four years before being called to Fellowship Presbyterian in 2000. Marty and his wife Celanie have four children.
Our Pastoral Intern is a seminary student training for the ministry. The Intern is included in the full range of pastoral responsibilities – preaching, teaching, leading worship, participating in various aspects of leadership in the church and working in the area of Family and Youth. The purpose of our Internship program is to assist men in their preparation for the Gospel Ministry and to be a blessing to the church body here at Fellowship. On average, an Internship at Fellowship lasts about two years.
Wendy Richards serves as our Administrative Assistance with responsibility for the weekly bulletin, monthly newsletter and support to our pastor and pastoral intern. Wendy is married to Terry Richards, ruling elder, and together they have four adult, married children and twelve grandchildren.
