More leadership information will be updated soon
Dr. Martin Sondermann, "Pastor Marty," has served in various ways within the Body of Christ for over 25 years. He has served as a Youth Pastor, a Missionary Pastor, a Prison Chaplain for nearly 12 years, and most recently as a Christian author and Bible teacher.
Martin earned his B.A. in Communication from Boise State University, an M.A. in Christian Apologetics, a Master's in Religious Education, and his Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Studies from Liberty University. However, Pastor Marty believes it was the two years he spent completing a Biblical foundations program at Calvary Chapel School of the Bible at Calvary Chapel Boise, Idaho, in the early 2000s, that was most fruitful when it pertains to setting the biblical foundations that he continues to hold to, to this day.
Pastor Marty says that the most impactful Pastors and Bible teachers that have influenced him the most over the years, aside from the man he considers his own pastor, would have to be first and foremost Pastor Chuck Smith. However, many other pastors such as Pastor Jon Courson, Dr. Ed Hindson, Dr. Chuck Missler, Pastor Jack Hibbs, Pastor Greg Laurie, Pastor Skip Heitzig, and Pastor David Guzik have been a huge blessing for him as he has studied and learned from their various resources.
Pastor Marty has been married to his wife Lori for over 26 years, and they have three adult sons. He enjoys spending time with family, exploring the mountains of Idaho, fishing, hunting, camping, and he has a passion and love for teaching God's Word.
