Our Pastor

Reverend John S. Martin came to Deer Creek Shores as Senior Pastor in August 2009.  He received his Masters of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in 2008 and was ordained at the First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame, California. Before entering fulltime ministry Rev. Martin served for over 15 years as a Ruling Elder, Sunday School Teacher, Stephen's Minister, and Men's Group Leader.


A native of the Atlanta area Rev. Martin graduated from Auburn University and enjoyed a 25 year career in business and technology consulting before entering seminary.  He lives on Lake Lanier with his wife Jennifer and enjoys fishing and boating.  They are blessed with three children, two dogs, two cats, and a horse. 


Rev. Martin brings a unique energy and perspective to Sunday Worship. When asked about his preaching style Rev. Martin replied, "I sat in the pews for many years before answering the call to full time ministry. I believe sermons should be intelligent, relevant, and even a bit fun. We need to hear the Gospel and we need to hear how it applies to our lives. I usually follow the Revised Common Lectionary which means we will cover all the Gospels in three years. Sermons are based on scripture, not on politics or the mood of the day, but we find the scripture speaks to all aspects of daily living."
