Marla Golden

High School Coordinator

Marla joined APC in 2009, along with her husband and two sons, after years of searching for a church home. She has served in many capacities at APC, including Deacon and Sunday school teacher. By far the most amazing thing that happened took place about 15 minutes after becoming a member of the church when she was invited to serve as a middle school shepherd at Crossroads Youth Ministry. Little did she know that this simple “yes” would lead to a calling to youth ministry, and a later in life career change. Marla has spent 11 years as a shepherd and is thrilled to be joining the Crossroads staff. She is also pursuing a master’s degree in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at NYU, which is the other part of the career change.
Marla loves to play pickleball, walk with friends, and spend time in the garden. Also, if
it’s snowing, Marla probably prayed for it.
