Dr. Marshall Fant leads the Church Consulting and Revitalization Program at GFA, which is a special outreach ministry to revitalize struggling churches and assist healthy ones with strategic planning. As a certified church consultant, he is available to work with churches on leadership, discipleship, financial, and facility challenges. Partnering with his father in the leadership of Fant’s Office Supplies in Anderson, SC, Marshall became familiar with short- and long-range business plans, human resources procedures, employee training programs, goal setting, and various applications of computer systems. When the Lord turned his heart toward the pastorate, he and his wife Gretchen replanted Harvest Baptist Church in Rock Hill, SC, in 1996, and saw it grow from an average attendance of 12 to 260 people. Marshall and Gretchen Fant have been married since 1981. They have five grown children and eleven grandchildren.
