Mark hopes to use his 20+ years of experience to strengthen local congregations in their areas of giftedness so they can effectively reach a lost and dying world through evangelism and authentic
discipleship. He desires to partner with other pastors and planters encouraging them to persevere, as well as form an accountability within the body, to live holy lives for God’s glory. Additionally
he desires to come alongside elders and pastors to train up / mentor planters to reach the un-churched and de-churched within and
outside of their surrounding community.
