Dr. Marsh 54, has been married to his wife Christine “Chris” for 20 years. They have three children: Cade (a 2016 honors graduate of PBA), Zack (a rising senior) and Calgary “Cally” (a rising sophomore).

Dr. Marsh is president of Calvary Chapel University (CCU). Dr. Marsh saw a need, which he prayerfully turned into an opportunity, and CCU was created to help Christian teachers, pastors, and administrators. Previously, he served as Superintendent of the 1900 student Calvary Christian Academy in Ft. Lauderdale. He was also Headmaster of the 1,000 student Horizon Christian Academy and Headmaster of the 514 student Calvary Christian Academy, both in San Diego, California. He has served as Headmaster of the 525 student Salisbury Christian School in Salisbury, Maryland.

While here in San Diego, Dr. Marsh was previously executive pastor of the Rock Church and president of Horizon Bible College. He also hosted the popular radio show “The Faith Factor” on KPRZ AM.

Dr. Marsh earned a B.A. from The University of Southern California (USC), a Master's from Pepperdine University and a Doctorate from Pensacola Christian College. He was ordained as a pastor in 2001.

Dr. Marsh's favorite thing to do every day is morning coffee and devotion time with his lovely wife and family snuggle time when the kids wake up.
