Our Pastor and his wife
Pr. Marcellus and Cisa de Oliveira
Pastor Marcellus and his wife Cisa have been serving
in our Church here in Galion, Ohio,
as well as those in Bucyrus and Marion, for the past 8 years.
They are both originally from Brazil,
and came to the States to prepare for Gospel ministry.
Both Pr. Marcellus and his wife Cisa graduated
from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary
at Andrews University.
in Berrien Springs, Michigan -
He with a Master of Divinity degree and
she with a Master of Arts in Youth Ministry.
Cisa de Oliveira is currently employed at Marion General Hospital
as a Nursing Assitant while pursuing a degree
in Nursing at Marion Technical College.
For ten years Pr. Marcellus was a Navigator
in the Brazilian Merchant Marine.
In 1990 he married his soul mate, Cisa,
who made his dry-land life his 'Shangri-La.'
Pr. Marcellus is a great fan of Formula 1 Racing
and of the world's greatest sport: Soccer!
Pr. Marcellus did not realize the drastic turn his life would take
by moving to the US in 1996 to study,
but since then he has learned to live a life of trust in God.
He believes that he has been called to reflect God's love and
to help others grow in their true, honest, and
personal relationship with God and others around them.
Favorite Scripture reading:
"He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
Micah 6:8 NIV
