Our Elders

Our church is led by a group of elders. These elders are men who cast vision for the church and handle matters of church business. Our church selects elders based on the Scriptural qualifications of 1 Timothy 3:2-7 and Titus 1:6-9.

 

 

AJ Roberts

AJ Roberts | Lead Pastor

As Lead Pastor, I work to provide a biblical vision and direction for the saints that make up the Church at Martinsburg. This takes place primarily through expositional preaching on Sunday mornings. I also, along with the other elders, labor to lead, teach and protect those entrusted to our care. Martinsburg has been my home from the beginning, and from the earliest of days, the Lord has been developing within me a love for Martinsburg and the people of this area. I long for all people, from my neighbors to the nations, come to know and love Jesus. Outside of the office, I can likely be found somewhere in Martinsburg with my wife, Cheree, and our three children: Bera, Judson, and Haddie. We love being outside, which typically takes the form of playing baseball or spending time at a playground.

 

 

Richard Marsh

Richard Marsh | Associate Pastor

As the Associate Pastor for the Church at Martinsburg, I serve alongside all of our leaders helping the church grow and the gospel go forth. I oversee all of the administrative, financial, and organizational aspects of the church – working as the Pastor that is behind-the-scenes most of the time. My wife, Ginger, and I followed God to the eastern panhandle in 2011 having moved from Charleston, WV with our daughter, Meagan and our son, Holden. I left a corporate job as an accountant to serve God and His people full-time as a Pastor. I have a Bachelors degree from West Virginia University in Accounting/Finance and a Masters degree in Christian Ministry from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Life keeps us very busy but we enjoy family game/movie nights and traveling together, preferably to the coast.

Jamie Leatherman | Associate Pastor

As an Associate Pastor, I serve alongside the other elders to lead, teach and protect the flock the Lord has entrusted to us. My responsibilities are oversight and working with the ministry leaders of: community groups, kids, students, church partners as well as a few other ministry areas. Previously earning a living as a Project Manager and serving as a lay elder, the Lord opened up the opportunity for me to serve in full-time ministry with the church I love so much. Raised in Martinsburg, my love for this city has continued to grow as I get older and raise my family. My wife Rachel and I have four children: Asher, Jase and our two foster kiddos. I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and friends, and being outdoors. We are grateful to be a part of this church family and have a deep desire for the Lord to be made much of as we help people find and follow Jesus.

Patrick Flowers | Lay Pastor

As a lay pastor at the Church of Martinsburg, I serve our body in “helping people find and follow Jesus”.  I am currently leading in our church by teaching various descipleship courses. My wife, Zabraida, and our two, children Savanah and Aiden, moved to Hagerstown, Maryland in 2016 from Vicksburg, Mississippi, where we immediately plugged into the Church at Martinsburg.  The Church at Martinsburg has a “connectedness” that is not common in most places; it is a body where we have been challenged and are growing in our walk with the Lord. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Jackson State University in Criminal Justice and work as a contractor with the federal government.  I enjoy family outings and gaming. I enjoy seeing God glorified through his people and people walking in newness of life based upon Christ’s victory over sin.

Terry Major | Lay Pastor

It is an honor and privilege to serve as lay pastor at the Church at Martinsburg with the other elders in leading, teaching and shepherding the flock of God.  As well as lay pastor I oversee the international missions’ activities, serve on the welcome team and participate in the prayer ministry for the church family. My wife, Martha, and I retired from 42 years of rural church missionary work with Village Missions and moved here to be closer to family.  We have three children and five grandchildren.  I love to read, to work in the yard and garden, to share the Word and to share in hospitality.
