Our Team

Marcus Pointe Thrift Store was started as the vision of Pastor Gordon Godfrey, Jr. He has a desire to do more for missions than he ever thought would be possible. Pensacola being a military town, he wanted to find a way to bless military families as well. The mission of the Marcus Pointe Thrift Store was born. We have stayed true to our mission since June of 2015.


At Marcus Pointe Thrift Store, we have a dedicated team of professionals who are passionate about providing a unique shopping experience for our customers. Our team members are knowledgeable about the products we sell and are always ready to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have. We hope that you will take the time to get to know us. 

Gordon Godfrey, Jr. - Sr. Pastor

Pastor Godfrey has been the Sr. Pastor at Marcus Pointe Baptist Church since 1991! He is an innovated leader and has a great desire to impact our local community in everything that Marcus Pointe does. 

Pastor has made plans for the next thrift store to be located in Pace, FL.

Melissa Penton - 
Store Manager

Pastor Godfrey brought Melissa on to be the store manager before he even had a building. Melissa, truth be told, does not even like shopping. However, she has a strong desire to see people reached with the gospel of Jesus. Pastor's mission fit perfectly with Melissa's outlook on life. Melissa accepted the role in February of 2015. 

Cassi Ford - 
Online Store - Manager

Cassi joined the Thrift Store team in July of 2015. She brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to every area of our store. We learned quickly that our online store needed to have a dedicated person to manage the flow of everything that was being sold across multiple platforms. Our online store has seen great success under Cassi's leadership.

Cassie Keever -
Assistant Manager

Cassie joined our team in June of 2017. Cassie is a Navy wife and brings her knowledge of all things military to us. She has been instrumental in helping us establish our current relationship with the Navy Marine Corp Relief Society. She helps every area of the store to run as efficiently as possible.
