My name is Marlon Furtado.

I regularly went to church as a boy, but I was not exposed to the Gospel until I was nearly twenty years old. Hearing that God loved me in spite of my behavior was new to me. In response, I received Jesus Christ and became one of His followers on September 12, 1971. I practiced chiropractic for eight years before leaving that profession to become a pastor in 1986 at Mt. Hood Baptist Church. In 1997 our church joined with Greater Gresham Baptist Church (now Pathway Church), where I was on staff until 2018.

I hope my blogs encourage you to draw near to Jesus. Many of my resources are designed to help you in your evangelism and followup of new believers. Others are charts to help you in your hold on the Scriptures. I also plan to highlight books that have helped me in my journey with Christ.
