Mark is a Fargo, North Dakota native that came to the northwest to attend Trinity Western University in the late 1980’s. In the early 1990’s he discovered Silver Beach Community Church and has been richly blessed by this church family ever since, not the least of which is the blessing of his wife Christine whom he met through SBCC. After many years in the field of radio, he attended The Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles where he was also blessed to be employed by the Grace to You radio ministry. In 2007 Mark graduated and was thrilled to be “brought home” that same year as an Associate Pastor for Spring Creek. Mark and his wife Christine love raising their six busy children.
