Parker Ford Church is by nature a family and an organism more than a corporation or an organization. While the scriptures are clear about the need for human leadership in the church they are also clear that God is the Father of the family and that Jesus is the center of the organism. So leadership at PFC aims to resemble a prayerful parenting more than executive management.


D. Jay Martin, Church Pastor at Parker Ford Church, joined the staff in October 2017. D. Jay has a passion for leading and shepherding individuals into places of intimacy and worship with God. He has been leading congregational worship for over 15 years and served as the primary leader and pastor at Drexel Hill Church of the Brethren over the past three years.

One of D. Jay's greatest desires - which greatly shapes his personal vision for ministry - is to live, serve, and lead in ways that are deeply pleasing to God. D. Jay and Julie have been married for eight years and have three young children. Their kids go by the nicknames Coach (6), Gracie (4), and Zak (1). A typical evening at the Martin house includes good food, lots of giggles, and tons of family fun.
