• Dr. Marriott is the president of Maranatha Baptist University, Watertown, Wisconsin.  The theme of his messages is "The Unity of the Church."  Dr, Marriott has served as President of MBU since 2009.  His history as a Maranatha alumnus and pastor have enabled him to minister effectively, leading faculty, staff, students, and alumni in accomplishing the mission of MBU. In 2021, Dr. Marriott passed a portion of his leadership role to Dr. Matt Davis, focusing his attention on spiritual leadership, promotion of the University, and oversight of the chapel ministry.
