Dave and Becki Martin

Dave and Becki recently celebrated 41 years of marriage and are thinking they’ll probably stick with the arrangement. They met at Judson Baptist College in Portland and finished their undergraduate degrees at Portland State University. After college they served for two years with Mennonite Board of Missions in Indiana, returning to Portland for Dave’s chiropractic training. Dave and Becki have two great kids, both married, and one beautiful granddaughter. They both love reading (paper, audio, and electronic books), traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Becki is currently a senior program manager working with people with developmental disabilities at Goodwill Industries, where she has worked for 25 years. Dave works as a job developer at Civic Justice Corps / Southeast Works.

They’ve been active in church life throughout their marriage, Becki working especially with kids and Dave in teaching and mentoring adults. Becki also enjoys initiating conversations over lunch with other women in the church; Dave is active in an African youth mentoring program, as well as corresponding with spiritual seekers around the world through Global Media Outreach. Recently Dave and Becki spearheaded a GBC outreach to a family of six orphaned Congolese children in their neighborhood.
