For over 34 years, Mark has been sharing the Gospel and ministering to others who have needed grace and hope. After serving our country for 13 years in the U. S. Army, both as a Drill Sergeant and Recruiter, Mark felt the call to full time ministry. Over the years, he has found himself stepping into many ministry roles – Children’s and Youth Pastor, Lead Pastor as well as church planter. Out of his own experience, Mark has developed a passion for helping pastors navigate through the landmines of ministry and family life. He and his wife Jill know all too well how pastors can lose their way in these two very important areas of life.
In addition to serving as Associate Pastor in his home church, Mark is ordained under ELIM Fellowship (Lima, NY) and serves as one of their Regional Directors; encouraging pastors and strengthening churches.
Mark loves spending time with his wife, gardening and camping by the lake with his two married children and seven grandchildren. He also loves working out at the gym daily, Tiger baseball and Michigan football.
