Pastoral Assistant and Music Director Marc Beckley
Marc joins CBC as a graduate of Appalachian Bible College. He is the oldest of four boys born to Ken and Sarah Beckley, missionaries to West Africa through Faith Baptist Mission. He was born and raised on the field. Saved at age 5 and baptized at 13, he did not have a definite call to missions until near the end of his junior year of college. He had always been open to the possibility, but never felt a definite call until then.
Marc & Joanna met at Appalachian Bible College in Beckley, West Virginia, and dated for almost four years. They were married in July, 2020. They interned at a small church in Bridgeport, West Virginia, for just over a year before the Lord led them to their current position here at Covington Bible Church. Their long term calling is to serve the Lord as missionaries in Africa, and are seeking to gain as much ministry experience as possible while the Lord has them here.
Secretary Stephanie Hinkle
