Pastor, Mitchell Martin

Mitchell Martin was born in his hometown of Lewisville, Texas in 1964. After graduating from Lewisville High School in 1983, Mitchell met the love of his life, Cissy. They married and went on to own and operate their own construction company building new homes and remodels.

In 1988, Mitchell made the life-changing decision to put his trust in Jesus while attending Northview Baptist Church. There he was mentored and really grew in his knowledge of the Word and his love for the Lord.

He was ordained as a Minister of the Gospel in 1999 by Lakeland Baptist Church and was sent out to serve in Prison Ministry while continuing in construction. Mitchell continued to pursue his love for the Bible and eventually enrolled in Seminary where he earned his Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and served full time on staff at Lakeland.

Married to the love of his life, Cissy for 38 years, they recently relocated to North Idaho and enjoy spending as much time as possible with their three granddaughters, their daughter Mackenzie and her husband Colby that live nearby.

Since the beginning of his involvement in ministry, Mitchell has had the privilege of serving in various ministry capacities through the years, including Associate Pastor of Education, Associate Pastor of Evangelism, and Associate Pastor of Counseling. He also recently served as Senior Pastor of a local church here in Idaho. In 2023, the Lord opened the door to begin a new work here in Coeur d’Alene where he is currently serving as Senior Pastor.

Mitchell and Cissy have a genuine love for the Lord, passionate hearts for the lost, and delight in reaching out to the community. Their prayer for New Hope Fellowship is that it will become a place where people can come to Know Christ, Grow in Christ, and Go with Christ. They would love to meet you!

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the powers of the Holy Spirit”. -Romans 15:13
