Mark was born in West Allis, Wis., and spent much of his childhood in Waukesha. His family moved to Kentucky, and Mark stayed there through college.
Mark married Colleen in 2006, and they share 5 children, three of whom are now adults. Two of the children are yet in high school.
Mark was saved at a young age and has been serving in the churches he has attended in a number of capacities. Namely, during the past few years, he’s enjoyed working with youth groups, Sunday school teaching, ushering, and teaching in the men’s group.
A God-given opportunity in midlife has shifted Mark over to full-time ministry to serve as associate pastor at Grace Bible Church in West Allis. He plans on attending college to become fully-accredited in his ministry while being discipled by Pastor Les Takkinen.
