MARTY SAMPSON: Elder, Director of Finance Office
Years of addiction and Deliverance
After many years of hopelessness and addictive behavior, I cried out to God for help and was immediately delivered from my substance addiction by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Recovery Program and 13 years of employment
Father God then sent me to a recovery program at Rescue Mission in Oxnard, CA. There I learned more about His love for me and what it was to be totally redeemed! I was offered employment by the mission and stayed and worked with them for thirteen years as an administrative/finance manager. Then, following His instructions to me I retired in August of 2015.
15 years at Harbor and 7 years as Elder
During those years at Rescue Mission I became a solid member of the Harbor Missionary Church (now to become Embrace! Simply Jesus), and in 2009, was blessed and honored to become an elder. This happened as the Lord was reshaping, taking and rebirthing the church. In late 2015, after my retirement from the Mission, I became involved in restructuring and overseeing the finances of Embrace!
