John Marn – Lay Pastor
“I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH in a Roman Catholic family. During my teen years, I really struggled with the beliefs of the church and started to question and doubt. When I started a new management job at K-Mart in February of 1974, it was there that I met my future wife, Kathy. She and her family were born again believers. It was during this time that Kathy invited me to her church and I heard the gospel for the first time! We were married in October of 1974 and K-Mart transferred me to Indiana where I became one of the managers for a new store that was being built in Huntington, IN. We moved into an apartment complex in Huntington across the street from a pastor and his wife. They invited us to the church that he was starting, called New Testament Baptist Church, and it was there that I accepted Christ as my Savior in January 1976!
Since it was part of God’s plan not to bless us with our own biological children, He did bless us by allowing us to adopt three children. Our oldest child is John III (he lives in Fort Wayne), our second oldest is Jeremy and youngest is Holly, (who both reside in Huntington). We have 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
God’s hand has been evident in our lives throughout the years that Kathy and I have been married. We are excited and humbled at what God is still doing in our lives today! He sovereignly brought us together as well as our children! He has led me to be able to hear the Gospel of Truth so I could accept Him as my Savior and Lord! And, now He has led us to Aboite Baptist Church for another chapter of our lives! We cannot wait to see what God has in store for our church’s future!”
