About My Family

My name is Gabe Martin. My family and I are honored that you desire to partner with us to reach the San Diego military population for Christ. My wife, Misty, and I have been married for 13 years. We have been blessed with two wonderful children: Ross (11) and Lily (7).

I served in the U.S. Navy for 11 years. During this time, the Lord gave me an overwhelming burden to reach others for Jesus and to help them learn to walk as His disciples. After serving in the military, I attended seminary and have since had the privilege to serve as the pastor of a local church.

We, as a family, believe we are being led by God to plant a church that will reach military members who are in life-situations we have experienced and to lead them in the joy and hope of Jesus that has been so vital to our family, both in and out of military life.

About My Church Plant

I am part of a church planting team whose purpose is to reach the military community for Christ in San Diego. We will be the ninth church plant in the Praetorian Project, which specifically plants churches outside of military installations (

Our church vision is simple— to know Jesus and make Him known—yet our scope is great, like our God! We desire to plant a church that multiplies by planting other churches throughout San Diego, the nation and even the world.

Would you partner with us to reach the San Diego military population for Christ?

Send Network church planters immerse themselves in a community, learning the rhythms and culture as they establish relationships with the lost. A church plant grows out of the evangelism efforts of the planter and his core team.
