Mark was born in Maryland and grew up south of Philadelphia. He was brought up in the church by Christian parents. He married his wife Heather in 2001. His spiritual growth has come from the realization that God is completely sovereign over everything that happens and has happened in our world. In addition, he has been impacted by understanding that the life, death, resurrection and return of Jesus Christ is the central story of human history, the Good News that we all need.
He and Heather live in Coopersburg Borough, Mark works in public education, currently serving at Southern Lehigh High School, and has served several area church (including Cornerstone) in youth ministry.
