A word from our new Pastor starting in late June 2018:
“Introducing people to Jesus is my greatest joy. It was through the influence of my youth pastor and several friends that I came to understand my need for a Savior. As a seventh grader, I prayer for Jesus to forgive me of my sin and give to me His righteousness. I asked Jesus to be Lord of my life for the rest of my life! I now can’t imagine life without Jesus Christ, and often wonder where I would be without His grace. I am so glad I was introduced to Him. It is my desire now to be the one who makes the introductions. My priorities in life are God, family, and the Church. Jesus has called me to serve all three as we introduce Him to a world that desperately needs to hear the truth of the Gospel.”
Pastor Mark has been married to Kristie since 1992 and they have two sons, Bryson and Caedmon. He is a graduate of Hardin Simmons University (BA Bible/History) and Southwestern Theological Seminary (M. Div.).
We are so pleased God has called Mark and his family to Verde!
