DAVE MARRIOTT is our Teen 4 speaker. He and his wife Emiley, together with a small group of believers, established Lakewood Baptist Church in Delafield, WI, in fall 2009.

Dave has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Maranatha Baptist Bible College and presently serves as the lead pastor at Lakewood Baptist Church. He focuses his time and energy on expository preaching, Bible teaching, and “marketplace” evangelism and apologetics. Emiley serves in women’s ministries and as the church secretary.
