Meet the First Loved Ministries Team
Mark is a pastor, teacher, and worship leader who received a BA in Christian Education from Wheaton College, a Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Talbot School of Theology. Prior to launching First Loved Ministries, Mark was the lead pastor of the Vineyard Metro-north church for 17 years where God forged these teachings and trainings in and through that beloved community. In 2006, God called him out of pastoring locally to be his “FIRST LOVED” messenger to the whole church, a role he cherishes and enjoys immensely.
A dynamic worship leader and songwriter, Mark has played piano, sung, and written songs for most of his life. Mark and his wife Robin have five adult children and two grandchildren. He and his wife currently live in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
