Mark was born in Minnesota but grew up in Watertown, WI. He was raised in a Christian family and came to faith in Jesus at a young age. For schooling, Mark graduated from Nicolet Bible Institute and then transferred to Oak Hills Christian College where he graduated with a B.A. in Pastoral Ministries and Biblical Studies. Mark is currently studying online at Moody Theological Seminary, working towards a Masters of Divinity degree. Following his graduation from Oak Hills in 2018 Mark married Katya, who he met at NBI. They have a daughter Naomi and a son Matthew. Mark was not always on board with serving God with his entire life, but in his life, he has come to realize God is worthy of far more than Mark could ever give Him. He is thankful for the faithfulness and grace that God has shown him, along with the patience God has had with him. His aim in life is to help people understand who God is and to know Him on a personal level.
