Pastor Stan Martin was saved while living with his best friend in Oxnard, CA at age 28.
In November of 2001, Pastor Martin felt the Lord was calling him to preach. About three months later, during a special meeting, the Lord worked in his heart. Through the preaching of Godís Word and the conviction of the Holy Spirit, he went forward and surrendered to the call to preach. In July of 2002, he became the Youth Pastor of Fundamental Baptist Church in Ventura CA. Through preaching, love, prayers, and the work of the Holy Spirit he has seen many teens go on and serve the Lord with their lives.
In November of 2011, God called Pastor Martin to move to Kalispell and pastor Victory Baptist Church. He and his family left their home in California and arrived in Kalispell on December 18th, 2011.
