Marsh is a graduate of Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio. He has served at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Queens, the Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit in Chicago, and the Church of the Holy Redeemer in Brooklyn.
In addition to being published on numerous occasions in The Lutheran Magazine, Marsh serves as the assistant to the Bishop for African American ministries and synodical outreach for the Southeast Michigan Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

The Festival Choral Eucharist for Reformation uses a model of the German mass that was adapted by Martin Luther in 1526. Instead of simply having a choral aspect, the service involves both a choral and preaching component. Luther’s goal was to highlight preaching, as well as the sacrament. The service uses various hymns, some of which were written by Luther.
Pre-service music by the Wittenberg Choir, the Wittenberg Handbell Choir and the Wittenberg Brass Choir begins at 7 p.m. The service begins at 7:30 p.m.
