Pastor Marty Troyer
Marty Troyer has been the pastor of Houston Mennonite Church since November 2008.
Marty loves his job and feels this is the perfect fit for him and his family. Marty is married and has three kids as amazing as your three kids, or any three kids you can think of. He’s pretty sure there isn’t anything better in life than parenting with his best friend in the whole world! Together they love to explore Houston (they’re partial to the kids’ museum and the zoo), the amazing restaurant scene, go “hiking” (if you can call nature walks in Texas “hiking”), and play Candy Land. They also love their dog Chubs.
Marty loves to read, and enjoys writing as well (you can check out some of his writing on this webpage, or at his Houston Chronicle Belief blog, called “The Peace Pastor” where he writes regularly). His first book, The Gospel Next Door, was published in June 2016.
Prior to ministering in Houston, Marty was a youth pastor for 9 years in Kansas and Oregon. He earned an Associate’s degree from Hesston College, a Bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College, and his Master’s degree from Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary. He loves preaching, encouraging people to become what they were created to be, and dreaming about what Houston could look like if we truly worked to make God’s “kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.”
Marty loves people and would be honored to meet you and your family!
