In his personal statement, Dr. Marriott says, ā€œI am confident that the Lord called me to serve as shepherd to a local body of believers. My training, along with my experience, has strengthened my ability and my desire to serve the Lord and His people. My first priority is to draw closer to God, only then will I be effective in leadership, evangelism, worship and discipleship. My second priority as pastor is to help people trust Jesus and grow in their faith.ā€
