Mark was born in Jacksonville, Florida where he earned a degree in Broadcast Management and began his broadcasting career as a Program Director. His morning show led the ratings of Christian stations in northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Soon he began receiving invitations to speak at area churches.
Sensing God’s call to full‐time ministry, he left broadcasting and began to serve as a student minister. Since then he has served as an associate pastor, pastor, and senior pastor. He has been humbled to serve in ten churches in five states over a period of nearly 40 years. In recent years he served as a Coach/Consultant for the South Carolina Baptist Convention and is the founder of Life Worth Living Ministries.
Mark earned a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Luther Rice University, a
master’s degree in divinity (with languages) from The Mid-‐America Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry in Church Revitalization at the Billy Graham School of Missions, Evangelism, and Ministry at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Mark was invited to train Russian pastors and church planters in Siberia in 1995. Since then he has been privileged to work with Russian believers and International Mission Board personnel across Russia where he has spoken in churches, universities, schools, government offices, prisons, and lead baseball clinics in order to reach people and start churches.
Mark founded Life Worth Living Ministries, a non‐profit organization, to facilitate his ministry in the United States as well as Russia. He is passionate about helping churches become healthy, maturing in Christ, and multiplying disciples.
Mark is married to Debbie and they have two children: their son, Mark Jr., who is married to Elizabeth, and their daughter, Lauren.
He enjoys training German Shepherds, working out, playing and coaching baseball, and most of all, time with his family.
With the heart of a pastor, Mark desires to glorify God by helping people discover life worth living in Jesus Christ. Joining God in His work is the delight of his life.
