Mark joined the leadership team at College Park Church in Indianapolis, Indiana as Lead Pastor in April 2008, after serving for 13 years in western Michigan. God miraculously and surprisingly called his family from a wonderful ministry in Michigan, to join a clear divine and historic movement of God at College Park Church. He sees God’s hand throughout the ministry in the church with a unique blend of passion for Jesus, a love for the Word, and a desire to see lives changed. Mark believes God is at work here in the church, and is thrilled to participate in igniting a passion to follow Jesus.
Mark is a graduate of Cedarville University and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. He has written articles that are published in Leadership and 9Marks Journal. In addition to his responsibilities of preaching and leadership at College Park, Mark serves on the boards of Cedarville University and Life Action Ministries. Mark and his wife, Sarah, have four children, Hayden, Joseph, Jeremiah, and Savannah, and one daughter, Sylvia, who is in heaven after her unexpected still-birth in February 2004.
What are some of your best and worst memories about your “home church?”
Why do you think God would entrust the precious gospel to such a broken people?
How could you “love the church more than where she’s at” even now — while you are in school?
