Gary and Marilynn Venden
Gary and Marilynn have been the lead pastoral couple at the Glendale Seventh-day Adventist church in Phoenix, Arizona for 22 years. They also work part-time with All About Jesus Revival Ministries. Both gifted musicians who love talking and singing about their best Friend, Jesus. Their seminars are offered as an aid to pastors and churches, assisting members in their personal walk with Christ.
Gary Venden has been in ministry 39+ years, and presently pastors the Glendale church in Phoenix, AZ, where he and his wife Marilynn have served since 1997. Gary carries a special passion for the message of “Righteousness by Faith” which he learned from his cousin and mentor, Morris Venden. Daily seeking a deeper personal friendship with Jesus has been the anchor point of his life and ministry. Gary counts it a privilege to join his cousin Lee Venden in continuing to proclaim this vital and life-changing message through the All About Jesus Revival Seminar.
Marilynn Venden spent her early childhood traveling with singing evangelist parents.
Sharing Jesus through music is in her DNA.
The first memory verse she remembers was when she was about age two – from the story of young Samuel: “Speak Lord, for your servant hears!” She has never doubted that Jesus speaks in a variety of ways that may be personal to each individual. She loves finding ways to remind others of this, and encourages them to spend time daily, at His feet, with Mary – listening.
Marilynn is currently a hospice chaplain, and mentors women in her local church. She has cut back in her hospice work to accompany her husband Gary as he shares the All About Jesus Seminar in various churches.
