Marks primary role at SUCC is to develop and implement a student ministry for Jr. & Sr. High School Students that introduces them to Christ; disciples them in spiritual growth; and trains them to serve Christ with their life. Of equal importance is to assist and empower parents/guardians in raising their teenagers to a spiritual awareness and maturity. In accomplishing this mission, Mark works closely with the rest of the staff and leadership to fully support all the ministries within the church.

Education History: I graduated in 2019 from Johnson University in Knoxville, TN with a degree in Youth Ministry and Communications.
Faith Background: I have never known any life other than one that is connected with the church. My dad has been a minister my whole life and my mom has always been just as involved in each of our congregations. Being a preacher’s kid is definitely interesting, but I know that it grew in me a great love for the church. My love for the church and Jesus pressed upon me a calling for ministry. The place where my heart was most changed for Jesus was through the love and discipleship of my youth leaders and sponsors. I don’t know where I would be without their influence in my life. Because of this, I have a passion for ministry to middle school and high school students. I want nothing more than to show students how much Jesus loves them.
