Pastor of Bethlehem
Mark joined Bethlehem as Pastor in 1989. He and his wife Tess have four children - Caleb and wife Emily; Rebekah and husband David; Sarah and husband Zach; & Mary - all four of his children are alumni of Bethlehem Lutheran Preschool! The Lord has added 5 grandchildren to his family who, admittedly, have Grandpa/Papa wrapped around their fingers!
Mark is a graduate of Christ College in Irvine (now Concordia University, Irvine) and received his Master's degree from Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
His hobbies include reading, cooking & spending time with his family. Born in the same town as Kool-Aid, is it any wonder that one of his hobbies includes playing with Play-doh with the Preschoolers?
A portion of Scripture that has brought him comfort as he has ministered to others is: No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him Who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
