Rev. Charlie Marus


Welcome to Faith! It has been my joy and privilege to serve as senior pastor here at Faith UMC for the past 8 years.

I have been in full-time ministry for 23 years, and have served several wonderful churches in North Georgia during that time. My college degree is from UNC Charlotte, and my Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology at Emory.

Now, education is fine…but what really matters to me is my family. My beautiful wife Alice and I are celebrating 33 years of marriage this month! She is a flight attendant for Delta Airlines (40 years!) and spends most of her time off doing dog rescue and fostering. We have 2 lovely daughters, Jessie (epidemiologist) and Carly (also a flight attendant), and 2 dogs (Harry and Lola)…plus whatever dogs we happen to be fostering at the momentJ

We love vacations and ‘stay-cations’, Hallmark movies and good books, mission trips and worship, and anything with bacon!

And we LOVE it here at Faith UMC…you will too!!
