Mark placed his faith in Jesus Christ for salvation when he was 15 years old. At that time, he fell in love with God’s Word, and since then, he has been teaching others how to read, understand, and obey the Scriptures for over 35 years. In addition to speaking, teaching, and discipling believers, he has helped plant churches, write curricula, and develop music outreaches. Mark is the senior pastor of a growing fellowship in Ahoskie, North Carolina, and has taught Bible and math to middle school and high school students for over 20 years. He is a homeschool dad to two teenage girls. He holds a bachelor's degree in Bible education from Columbia International University and a master’s degree in Christian apologetics with studies in church planting/growth. Mark is on the board of directors for The Shepherd's Calling, a missions organization whose goal is to train pastors and plant churches in Moldova.
