Marshall Brown is the lead minister at Flagstone. He spent the bulk of his "growing up" years in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, before attending Harding University. He began working as youth minister at Southside Church of Christ in Rogers, Arkansas, in June 1995, just after graduating with a B.A. in Bible from Harding. He served as youth minister for 11 years and then was asked to begin serving as the associate minister at Southside in July 2006. He joined several families from Southside in planting the Flagstone church in April 2010, and has enjoyed watching God do amazing things through this church family ever since. While at Harding, he met Kristy Alexander, and they were married on May 18, 1996. They have been blessed with three wonderful boys: Ethan, Griffin, and Tyson.
