Pastor-Teacher | Staff Elder
Pastor Marshall is a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute, Trinity College and has attended Trinity Seminary in Deerfield IL. The original goal for his life was to become a professional musician. Shortly after realizing his dream, he discovered that having “arrived” did not bring the joy or the fulfillment that he anticipated. Through a series of providentially arranged circumstances, he came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Since that time, he has been passionate about knowing the Lord’s Word and teaching it accurately.
Jerry’s passion for assisting people to comprehend and apply God’s Word through the vehicle of expository teaching is best articulated in Nehemiah 8:8, "They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read."
Pastor Marshall has over three decades of ministry experience. Through these years, Cynthia, his wife has faithfully served beside him as his life partner and gifted participant to the overall ministry. Together, they have three sons who are married and raising their own families.
Pastor Marshall is a gifted communicator who is dedicated to teaching God’s Word one verse at a time.
Associate Minister for Students & Administration
Jeremiah came to NCC as the Minister to Students in August 2011. He has taken on the responsibility of church administration since December 2012. He was born and raised in the “Big Sky Country,” Montana. Jeremiah grew up in a great Christian home and attended church every week. But, it was not until college that God intervened in his life and convicted him of his rebellion against God. While studying business management, in college, he began to have a desire to serve the Lord in a full-time capacity. After college, he moved to Montgomery, TX where he served at a church for nearly two years before moving to Los Angeles, CA to pursue a M. Div. from the Master’s Seminary. Jeremiah served as a pastoral assistant in the high school ministry of Grace Community Church and was the coordinator for Regeneration Summer Camp while attending seminary. Jeremiah and his wife Courtney were married in 2009 and have two boys, Noah and Hudson.
