Pastor Bill G. Marshall
Bill G. Marshall was born in Lawton, Oklahoma on August 3, 1956. He was saved in April of 1984 from a life of drug and alcohol addiction. The LORD called him into evangelism in 1989 and he began to preach at every given opportunity. He and his wife, Pam, have been married since August 1978 and have two daughters, Emily and Sara.
Pastor Marshall traveled in evangelism for 16 years before accepting the pastorate at Riverside Baptist Church in January of 2008. The Lord has done great things in the past nine years, including allowing the church to purchase and remodel the building they now meet in on Mitchell Avenue. The church is growing and very excited about what the Lord is allowing them to accomplish for His glory.
Pastor Marshall has a vision of reaching and helping people in St. Joseph. The church has many outreach programs, including the Refiner's Fire Addiction Recovery Ministry. People need help, and he believes the church is a place that they may receive it. He is a Bible preacher and has a holy hatred for sin. He has a sincere desire to see those that are lost repent of their sin and trust Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. He believes that the world needs to see strong Christians living the victorious life that God has for them. He knows that the preaching and teaching of God's Word will give direction toward that life. He has a desire to lead them that way.
Andrew grew up in a military home. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour June 10, 1991, during Vacation Bible School. During his high school years, he had the opportunity to travel overseas on a missions trip. During this trip, God began dealing with his heart about full-time ministry. During the Spring of 2001, Andrew surrendered to full-time ministry and enrolled at Heartland Baptist Bible College that fall. After graduation, Andrew served on staff at First Baptist Church of Peaceful Valley for 11 years. Andrew and his family moved to St. Joseph in August 2016 and joined the staff in April of 2018.
In June of 2004, Andrew married Mrs. Crystal. They are blessed with five children, Emilie, Lydia, Isabella, Micah, and Levi.
Emily was raised in a Christian home, her parents went into full-time ministry when was she 12 years old. Her dad led her to the Lord on the side of the road over her cell phone at the age of 21. Upon graduating from West Coast Baptist College in 2003, she went to work for Calvary Baptist Ministries in Eufaula, OK. She has also worked for Reformer's Unanimous in Rockford, IL.
In 2010, she moved to St. Joseph and came on staff at RBC in August of 2011. Being asked to work alongside her parents in ministry was a wonderful honor. She has enjoyed being the secretary of the church for the past 6 years.
