He has completed the study courses in Biblical Counseling offered by CCEF and serves as a full-time staff Pastor for GBC.

Pastor Mark was born in Fort Lauderdale, FL and came to faith as a teenager. He moved to South Carolina in 1979 to attend Clemson and received a B.S. in Civil Engineering. He also joined GBC as a student. He then invested 30 years in the construction industry and owned his own business for 22 years. In 2010, he came on to the GBC elder board, but in 2013, he was called as pastor of Beijing Baptist Church in Beijing, China where he and his wife, Cheryl, served for 6 years. In 2019, he returned to the States and joined Pastor Jamie as co-pastor of GBC. He has been married to his wife, Cheryl since 1985, and together they have 4 adult children. He is also experiencing the joys of being a grandparent with his granddaughter. He enjoys all things Clemson, gardening, fishing, hunting and hiking! A verse that has given special shape to his life and ministry is Colossians 1:28, “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.”
