Dr. Marcus L. Arrington, Senior Pastor

I’m excited and honored to serve God’s people and serve the Sherman Park and Greater Milwaukee community as Lead Pastor of Parklawn Assembly of God. I’ve been richly blessed by the ministry, mentorship, and modeling provided by Bishop Walter F. Harvey. It’s my honor to succeed him in the senior pastor role and continue to collaborate with him as he serves the body of Christ and community locally and nationally in an apostolic role.

My first ministry is in my home. God has blessed me with a beautiful, loving, godly wife (Crystal) and two outstanding, godly children (Jacen and Makaila). They are journeying with me. Together, we are the ATEAM!

Along with our compassionate and anointed pastoral team, I get to guide and prepare God’s people to share the “light, life, and love” of Jesus Christ in our city and world. One of my favorite verses is John 17:4, “I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.” Like Jesus, I too want to bring God glory by operating in my design and finishing His assignments for my life. I do this through prophetic worship, prayer, teaching, preaching, writing, and giving. This blend of gifts, enables me to equip others to engage their destinies so that they too will bring God glory through completion of His mandate for their lives. God has a dream for all of us individually and collectively.

As we follow His leading, we will fulfill His dream and bring godly transformation to our families, communities, and world!

“A dream is the foundation of hope. Faith keeps dreams alive. Never stop dreaming. And, never lose faith.”   -Dr. Marcus L. Arrington
