St. Mark Lutheran Church Leadership
St. Mark Lutheran Church is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
I am delighted to be in such good company!
I have been a member of St. Mark's for several years now. A month ago, I came in to meet with Pastor Carol to discuss my varied attendance, we got to talking, a little serendipity happened and I ended up taking this position... I guess God had wanted to make my membership a little more official too! :)
When I am not here, I am with my family or friends. I am married to Matt and we have two biological children; Rosie (5) and Natalie (1.5) and we are hoping to officially make it three soon with the finalized adoption of my niece, Felicity (8).
We are fully immersed in outdoors Alaskan life. I am an avid runner-a trail if I am lucky or to my grandparent’s house if I am even luckier! Our summer sports have ended so Fall for us means coming back together as a family, cramming in daytime adventures between school days and a lot of homemade stew!
I hope to see you soon.
Until then, stay safe.
