Pastor Marcus Sisk was born in Chatsworth, Georgia, and raised in the Southeast region of the United States as his father (and hero) faithfully served in the ministry.  Marcus was ordained April 20, 1989, in Dalton, Georgia, and followed in his father's footsteps as he traveled and served as a devoted Youth Pastor, Assistant Pastor, and Senior Pastor at several churches throughout Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, and Georgia from 1990-2021. He was placed as Pastor at The Church of God of the Union Assembly at Knoxville on January 29, 2023. Marcus married his wife, Jessica, in 2009, and together, they have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. Some of his greatest influences throughout life were his father, Kenneth Sisk, as well as Brothers Phillips Gentry, Jack Giles, Paul Hughes, and Dennis Smith. His desire is to see the Church grow through the preached word, building strong relationships and programs, and community outreach. 

ALLEN MASSENGILL

ASSISTANT PASTOR

Assistant Pastor Allen Massengill was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, and has served as Assistant Pastor at The Church of God of the Union Assembly at Knoxville since July 2020. He was blessed to grow up in a religious home, and at 13-years old, felt the call on his life to serve in the ministry. At an early age of 14-years old, Allen was ordained as a bishop on March 21, 1971, in Dalton, Georgia. In 1980, he married his wife, Trish. Throughout the years, he has faithfully served The Church of God of the Union Assembly in many different states. Allen's greatest influence throughout life was Brother Charlie T. Pratt, III. His desire for the Church is to see it grow in unity and to see the lives of God's people changed forever.
