After 27 years as Senior Pastor, Marvin rejoined the Hillside Church staff as the Pastor of Senior Adults and Care Ministries. His primary area of ministry focuses on those who are going through times of illness and sorrow, leading him to hospitals and rest homes around the Bay Area. Hillside’s growing Hillside Senior Citizen Ministry is a time for believers to meet for prayer, study, and fellowship together. 

Marvin came to Christ as a young man at the Turlock Evangelical Free Church. After graduating from Biola University, he earned his Master’s of Theology from Talbot Seminary in 1957. The Lord led him and his wife, Lenora, through ten years of pastoral work in Southern California, and six years in Chico. They came to Hillside Church in 1966.
