Marquis Boone ( Executive Producer Atlanta)
If passion and purpose have long served as stalwart roots for Atlanta-based pastor Marquis Boone, then the titles of spiritual leader, motivational speaker, Amazon best-selling author, entrepreneur, mentor, and spiritual advisor to a host of celebrities are certainly the outreaching branches that have sprouted from his lifelong dedication to building the kingdom of Jesus Christ. Currently serving as the Lead Pastor of the emerging Fresh Start Church in Duluth, GA, he has been lauded by fellow spiritual leaders and more for his innovative approach to ministry and leadership – a trait that already sees him setting the new standard for permeating boundaries in and beyond the faith-based arena. Armed with an endearing message of renewal, healing, and restoration, his vision has manifested into a ministerial movement of cultural transcendence.
