Rev. Dr. Marvin Anthony Moss

The Reverend Dr. Marvin Anthony Moss became the 14th pastor of Salem United Methodist Church on July 1, 2014. His mission is Kingdom Building: Growing, Sustaining and Revitalizing – ensuring congregations and leaders move forward in the work and will of God.

Dr. Moss is leading the effort of restoring the historic Salem UMC back to her prominence. Salem, like many urban churches, had been tremendously impacted by the economy and changing demographics. Since his arrival, Salem’s worship attendance has increased by more than 100 persons and membership continues to grow. He has increased the church’s social media and technology footprint by creating a church website and utilizing Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Salem’s 501C3, Salem Community Services Council, as well as the Children’s Choir have been revived, and a Male Chorus created. Massive renovation projects have been funded to make the church more aesthetically appealing.

Dr. Moss comes to Salem after having served as the Senior Pastor of Atlanta’s prominent Cascade United Methodist Church (2006-2014).  During his service there, more than 1,300 members joined and more than 50 ministries performed outreach services to the local, national, and global communities. In 2011, under the leadership of Dr. Moss, Cascade UMC presented Morris Brown College President Stanley Pritchett with the monetary donation that helped the struggling college settle its debt to the U.S. Department of Education.

Prior to Cascade, Dr. Moss served as Senior Pastor at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia (1999-2006). St. James expanded from fewer than 200 members to more than 1200. Additionally, the congregation purchased 15 acres of land and a new edifice was erected. Prior to St. James, he was Associate Pastor at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church in Decatur, Georgia.  

Dr. Moss was a frequent guest of President Barack Obama’s National African American Clergy Leaders Group and has testified on Capitol Hill before a Senate Hearing Committee on the long term effects of unemployment.

A native of Goldsboro, North Carolina, Dr. Moss graduated from Hampton University and the Naval Chaplains Reserve Officers School. He also holds a Master of Divinity Degree from Gammon Theological Seminary at the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC), and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Drew University. Dr. Moss is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, 100 Black Men of New York, and Leadership Atlanta Class of 2011. He is the recipient of the 2003 and 2011 Denman Evangelism Award for Church Growth, the NAACP Emancipation Award, the 2011 Gammon Theological Seminary Distinguished Alumnus Award, and the Whitney M Young, Jr. Service Award from the Boy Scouts of America and is an Eagle Scout. He was inducted into the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Board of Preachers in April of 2009. As a Mentor/Coach and Consultant, he empowers other pastors and congregations to operate at their fullest God given potential and shares many of his learnings in his first book entitled, NEXT: Surviving a Leadership Transition
