Gary & Karen Marshall

Senior Pastors

Gary and Karen Marshall are the founding and senior pastors of Harvest Church of Southeast Texas. Since it began in 2000, Harvest Church has grown to have a campus that encompasses a tuition free charter school and fully operational food bank that services the southeast region of Texas. Pastors Gary and Karen have made it a priority to ensure that Harvest Church has a life-giving culture with a focus on leading people to an intimate relationship with God.

Pastor Gary has a deep passion for developing leaders through following God‘s word about relationships and serving the lost.  He leads the Ministerial Alliance, which has brought together dozens of churches throughout the Southeast Texas region. He has been instrumental in emphasizing prayer in some of the most critical and controversial times in Jasper and the surrounding area. Pastor Gary and Karen believe relationships are vital as loving our neighbor should be a focus that leads toward loving ourselves and more importantly loving Jesus.  They additionally believe that small groups are an essential way to accomplish more together, by not doing life alone.  While ensuring people have a way to Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose, and Make a Difference.

Gary and his wife Karen have three children, eleven  grandchildren, and live in Jasper, Texas,  where Harvest Church began.
