Tony and Sherry Martin come to us as seasoned ministers of the gospel, and at Journey, they care for our congregation first from their hearts, and secondly by overseeing ministries to help our people grow and thrive, such as membership, small groups, recreational teams and outings, and hands-on visitation and service.
They have been in ministry for over 30 years and have served in various ministry roles as Lead Pastors in the states of SC/NC and International Missionaries in Latin America. It has been their privilege to live and serve as Resident Missionaries in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Peru, and Regional Ministry Directors for Central and South America. As Regional Ministry Directors, they were able to travel to several countries proclaiming the gospel, leadership training, and mobilizing the body for the harvest. Tony & Sherry have facilitated and collaborated with many teams on the mission field in construction, medical, ministry training, and evangelism. Sherry also served as Regional Director in Latin America of a holistic child sponsorship program. They have three children: Melissa, Chesley, and Melinda, and are proud grandparents. Their favorite scripture to stand on is Ephesians 3:20.
