Marc Galaske

Connections Pastor

I grew up in St. Louis, which is where I met my wife, Lori. Seven months after we were married, we moved to Columbia to be a part of CF, a place wherein we felt like we were home! In 1994, when our daughter was in 7th grade, I began volunteering with the youth ministry. And then in 2003 I came on staff as the youth pastor and never looked back. I currently serve as the Connections Pastor, meeting with those new to the church and seeking to get involved.

Marc’s Likes

I have been married for 35 years. I am the father of two, father-in-law of two, and grandparent (“Pop Pop”) to four. I enjoy tinkering with wood and have recently found I enjoy grilling and learning how to cook.

Marc’s Motivations

Few things move me more than seeing preteens/teenagers open their hearts and lives to the gospel of grace in the person of Jesus! It is an amazing privilege to witness students move from the faith of their parents to making it their own. I also love helping people discover their spiritual gifts and passions and finding a meaningful place of service.
