Mark grew up in a pastor’s family and at a young age committed his life to Jesus. However, it probably wasn’t until late in high school when he truly began to surrender his entire life to God. God called him into the ministry and in 2008 he became a Youth Pastor at Burien Free Methodist Church. Mark then came to Praise in 2012 and served as the youth pastor until 2016. He transitioned into his current role of Associate Pastor of Connections and is enjoying seeing people connect to Jesus through Jesus’ body, the church. He also serves as part of the teaching team at Praise.
Mark graduated from Northwest University in 2008 with a double major in Youth Ministry and Biblical Studies. He is currently an MDIV canditate at North Park Theological Seminary. Mark is married to his wife Lindsay and they have two beautiful children.
