Hi Marty! What do you do @ Charis?
I am the Director of Discipleship. My job is to spiritually care for camp staff and volunteers, help develop a discipleship culture and arrange for the recruitment and hiring of all program staff for all camp and conference events. I have been at Charis since 2016.
What do you like about your work?
I love that I get to work from my heart and be creative and flexible in how I approach the different objectives. I love that Camp is a place where people hear from God and I get to be a witness of Him changing lives! Seeing people grow in their gifts and relationship with God is so much fun!
What about life @ home, what does that look like?
My favorite times at home are dinnertime & the kids bedtime. I love food. I also love slowing down and hearing about everyone’s day. Bedtime seems to be a special time where windows of opportunity open into my boys hearts. My wife and love of my life, Krista, and I have almost been married 20 years. I have 2 boys, Tucker (12) and Riley (9). I love that they are good friends and I love spending special time with each one of them.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I like reading, NHL Hockey fantasy, swimming and driving slow with my deep thoughts. I enjoy building things with wood, alone in my garage. I also enjoy playing hockey and watching my boys play soccer and scootering at the local skatepark.
Why the team thinks Marty is so Awesome:
We love Marty's openness and determination. He has an amazing heart for young people. Marty's desire is not only to have people love Jesus, but grow in knowing and walking with Him. Marty is a dichotomy of extreme ridiculousness (so funny) and incredible depth (so insightful)...a perfect mix for young people. He is always willing to lend a hand, teach you how to protect yourself in a knife fight and make you laugh. He is just great to work with and an awesome guy to know!
