Beauty out of Brokeness

John and Ashley Marsh of Marsh Collective

John and Ashely’s story as a couple mirrors that of their once-neglected and now reclaimed city. They are the proprietors of Marsh Collective, a conglomerate of business ventures dedicated to resurrecting the city of Opelika, Alabama. Through a vulnerable recounting of their past tumult, the Marshes share how healing in their broken lives became their inspiration to bring hope to others through business.


In Partnership with FAITH & CO

Faith & Co. is a documentary series by Seattle Pacific University ( which highlights the struggles, triumphs, and stories of people like you: businesspeople wrestling with what it means to live out business as their calling. Through these inspiring examples, filmed across three continents and 18 U.S. cities and featuring a wide range of industries — high tech, health care, retail, and property development — we seek to provoke questions and provide insights about what it means to act as faithful followers of Christ in business. Whether you are a business professional, a minister, a student, or simply someone interested in exploring how the Christian faith is lived out in the global marketplace, Faith & Co. challenges traditional assumptions and hopes to inspire you to re-imagine business practices to more closely align with God’s creative and redemptive agenda.
