Pastor Reagan Marsh
Hi! My name is Reagan Marsh, and I have the joy of serving as Pastor-Teacher to RBC. A little about me: I love the Bible, and have been given the grace to preach it since 1998. I studied at NOBTS and SBTS, trained as a biblical counselor through IBCD and ACBC, and am doing Th.D work in Puritan studies through TNARS. You’ll find me to be a former schoolteacher, hopeless bookworm, and all-around theology nerd.
Kara, my best friend, married me in 2000. I’m still not sure she knew what she signed up for, but she homeschools our children, helps me with biblical counseling, and makes me laugh! Kara’s the glue that holds our family together, and the biggest blessing God’s given me apart from Christ.
In my free time, I really enjoy reading (especially the Puritans), writing (Founders) , playing guitars, and spending time with my family. It’s my life’s work to point sinful people to the glorious, all-sufficient mercy of God, found in Jesus alone.
Hope to see you soon at Reformation!
Blake Gentry, Elder
My name is Blake Gentry, and I have the privilege of serving as an elder at Reformation. I enjoy studying and memorizing the Scriptures, as well as spending time with my family. I have a particular burden for shepherding those who struggle with depression and anxiety, and I love walking alongside believers as they build a solid, comprehensive, and Biblical worldview. God’s Word comes to bear on all areas of life, providing His people with sanctifying guidance, that they may abide in His peace, enjoying and glorifying Him while living in His world!
I’ve been married to my excellent wife, Bethany, since 2010. She has been one of the chief means of sanctification in my life since our relationship began, and she is the most precious gift I’ve received apart from Christ Himself. Together, we have three children we’re seeking to train up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord; we desperately desire to raise sons and daughters who walk with Christ.
Alongside the elders at Reformation, I desire to point the world to the mercy, hope, and rest found in Jesus Christ. We look forward to partnering with you for the sake of His glorious kingdom!
Matt Jensen, Elder
My name is Matt Jensen, and I serve as one of the elders at Reformation.
I wholeheartedly believe that God exists (Psalm 14:1; Psalm 53:1); that everyone has rebelled against him (Romans 3:10-20); that our rebellion has devastating consequences (Ephesians 2:1-3); that God alone can reverse the effects of our rebellion (Isaiah 45:21); that the Father decreed, Christ the Son accomplished, and the Spirit applies everything necessary to save us from our rebellion (Ephesians 1:3-14); that those who have been rescued by God make up the church (1 Corinthians 12:12-31); that every word of the Bible is God-breathed and useful for teaching (right doctrine), reproof (what not to do), correction (what to do), and training in righteousness (how to do it) (2 Timothy 3:16); and that to shepherd a church is to teach and lead by everything that God has revealed to us in his word about what we are to believe and how we are to live (Acts 20:26-28).
These are the convictions that drive me to pursue the lost and shepherd the found, and I am so thankful to do this at Reformation Baptist Church with like-minded shepherds! Beside the grace of this calling, God has blessed me with an amazing helper, my wife, Danielle. I could not accomplish half the things I do without her, and I would be less than half the man. She truly is my better half! God has also blessed me with an amazing little boy, Judah. He is named after Jacob’s son because both are great sinners — but my hope is that my son’s life, like Judah’s, would point to a great Savior!
