Pastor Mark and his family joined the Ardella family in May 2016. His wife Kim is the CFO for Florida Baptist Children's Homes. Together they have two children, a son Christian and a daughter Shelby. Both are currently attending college.
Pastor Mark surrendered to the ministry in 1993 and began serving in student ministry in Texas, Mississippi, and Florida. He completed his Master's degree and Doctorate at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Prior to coming to Ardella Baptist Church, Pastor Mark served as Discipleship Pastor, Missions Pastor, Campus Pastor, and was the interim National Director for Faith Riders Motorcycle Ministry. Ardella Baptist is his first Senior Pastor position, and he loves every minute of it.
