Welcome to Salem Evangelical Church

Salem Evangelical Church in Marion, Ohio is working hard at “Changing Lives…Transforming Hearts!” A member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference, our vision can be summed up in one word: MINISTRY. Ministry simply means that we are devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ and passionate about carrying His message to a hurting and dying world.

On our website you’ll find our latest news and events, you can read and listen to recent sermons, and you can keep up to date with our monthly newsletter. You’ll also find details on our various ministries, including our two youth groups.

This is an open letter to my spiritual family. To the family I choose to worship with and who have allowed me to step into your branch office of the Church. Some of you know the struggle I and my family are facing right now, some of you may not. I wanted to address this so that there would be no confusion.
About 4 months ago, I was discharged from my position because i upset the apple cart. I discovered things that were going on that are now being investigated by the company who purchased this company. Anyway, for the last 4 months I have been interviewing, praying, and praying and far nothing but interviews, and more to come. In the middle of this, our A/C started leaking through our ceiling, and the water pump went out on our vehicle. So, as we figure out what to do, I was offered an opportunity to alternatively provide for my family....It means spending my Sundays, about 15 hours including travel, stripping and waxing floors.....So, that is where I have been. I am not avoiding my family, I am not upset, I am simply trying to use what God had provided to provide for my family. I would greatly appreciate all of your prayers as we work our way through this transition. I am continuing to search and pray, and that you to those whom I have seen on my mostly daily bike rides. Your waves and smiles are greatly appreciated. I miss you all and look forward to being back with you soon. I love each of you and pray that you continue to grow in the most holy faith...
