Mark is a graduate of Warner Pacific College. It was at WPC that Mark met his wife Lynn and they were married in the fall of 1974. From 1975 to 1980 Mark served as the youth and music associate pastor at the Woodlawn Church Of God in Royal Oak, MI.  Mark and Lynn have 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren all of which they enjoy immensely!  Mark enjoys several hobbies all of which involve the out of doors. Including, but not limited to, biking, bird hunting, fishing, gardening, landscaping, mowing with the ExMark zero turn…well you get the idea! He also enjoys music and still takes his turn leading worship at the church. His ministry passions include just loving God and loving people…all ages, shapes, and sizes. Seeing families growing in their faith walk and men’s ministry are all very important parts of Mark’s ministry life.
