Holiness matters most...

Ministering to churches, pastors, pastors' wives, and lay-leaders.


We’re glad you stopped by!  

John Marshall married Ruth Huey in 1971. Their two children, John II and Rebekah, have given John and Ruth seven wonderful grandchildren. Born in 1951, in Sikeston, Missouri, Dr. Marshall is a sixth-generation preacher who was called to the ministry at age 15.

Dr. Marshall graduated from Central High School in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and earned a degree in Mathematics from Southeast Missouri State University. He graduated from New Orleans Baptist Seminary as the youngest man ever to earn a Doctor of Ministry degree from a Southern Baptist seminary (age 23).

Before retirement, John and Ruth served 22 years at Second Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri. While Dr. Marshall was Pastor there, the church was annually the highest contributor in Missouri to the Cooperative Program, and one of the state leaders in baptism. The church began giving over a million dollars a year to missions, plus in the Marshalls’ last seven years at Second, the church gave $2.6 million to church planting, and started 51 churches.

In 2019, John celebrated 52 years in the ministry, and 48 years of marriage with Ruth. They desire to continue ministering to churches, pastors, pastors’ wives, and lay-leaders in the years to come!
