Marion Van Vliet

Administrative Pastor

Marion has lived in the Escalon area for over 60 years. He was a dairy farmer until 2002 and has had a desire to be involved in ministry most of his life. Marion is married to Avis and has two adult children. He came on staff at ECC in April of 2002 as the Administrator and in 2005 received his Ministry License from the Evangelical Covenant Church and became the Administrative Pastor. Marion oversees finances, facilities, coordinates small groups and the mission trip to Alaska Christian College. He is passionate about discipleship ministries. His favorite verse is 1 John 5:3-5.  Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. "For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God."

He loves being in the mountains. But when it comes to a favorite spot to vacation, it has to be the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Marion enjoys spending time on long drives with Avis, spending time with family, reading, and working in the yard.
