[Download Vertical Photo] [Download Horizontal Photo] Dr. Marty Marriott was named the fifth president of Maranatha on September 30, 2009. He took office during the 2010 spring semester. His pastoral experience dates to 1979, when a Bible study Dr. Marriott started in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, led to the founding of Oak Ridge Baptist Church. He was the pastor of that church until 1988 and from 1993-97. He was also the pastor at First Baptist Church of Lock Haven, Pennsylvania (1988-93) and Faith Baptist of Warren, Michigan (1997-2010). Dr. Marriott received a Doctor of Divinity degree from Maranatha in 2007. He previously earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Maranatha in Bible and Pastoral Studies (1976) and a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies and Languages (1977). He also earned a Master of Divinity degree from Temple Baptist Theological Seminary (1979) and a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Liberty University (1990). The Cincinnati native has been a member of Maranatha’s Board of Trustees since 1998 and has also served on the boards of Baptist World Mission, the Independent Fundamental Baptist Association of Michigan, and the Michigan Association of Christian Schools. Dr. Marriott and his wife met at Maranatha in 1974 and were married on June 26, 1976. Mrs. M's father, Dr. David Cummins, was a member of Maranatha’s first Board of Trustees. The Marriotts have three adult children and nine grandchildren. All three children—Rebecca (Brock), Rachel (Roberts), and David—are faithfully serving the Lord.
