If you could sit down with Mark and hear the burden God has placed on his heart, you may be surprised by his story. He graduated college with a degree in accounting and several years later settled into a job in the corporate world. He handled numbers with ease that he attributes to having a general “accountant’s” approach to life.
At the time, he would’ve never dreamed God would call him away from the corporate world on a journey that would lead to becoming a pastor. Mark struggled for a while with the tugging of God on his heart. He would have never considered himself a candidate for the job. But, after a period of wrestling with God, Mark answered the call and out of that surrender, LifeHouse began.
Mark and his family know that in answering a call, they are at God’s disposal to use for His purposes. That means no agenda, no expectations, no mega-church strategy models - just faith in God step by step.
As we look forward to what God will do in the ministry of LifeHouse, Mark is eager for the opportunity to boldly proclaim truth from God’s Word, and to shepherd this local church body as he is led by God.
Mark married Tammy in 1997 and together they have four children: Abigail, Hudson, Sophia & Bianca.
