Mark has been a member of Hope church since 2005. He and his wife Lucy joined Hope Church shortly after moving here from Indianapolis where they were active members at Church at the Crossing in Indianapolis. They moved here to take care of Lucy's aging mother, who did not wish to move away from the rest of her family.
Leaving Church at the Crossing was very hard, but they soon found a home at Hope Church after a chance encounter with the founding pastor at a coffee shop. Mark and Lucy quickly involved themselves in the church, joining the Sunday Morning Set Up Team as well as Small Groups.
Mark served as a Deacon for many years and participated in the Homeless Ministry. He currently leads a Sunday morning bible study, participates in Cafe Esperanza Outreach Mission, and assists with office administration duties. He can usually be found welcoming those who attend, out in front of the church.
