Mark serves Trinity as Associate Minister and Facilities Manager. In addition to his pastoral duties and audio/visual production for services and events, he is Trinity’s primary facilities contact, coordinating with AHB Community School and 50+ regular renters of Trinity spaces. He also works closely with Trinity’s Board of Trustees and coordinates building services and repair calls.
Mark has been an ordained pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) since 2009. For the uninitiated, there is an alphabet soup of Lutherans, and Mark notes that the ELCA are the “liberal ones”!
There is a very long (and ecumenical) journey preceding Mark’s ordination milestone. Mark’s father was a Presbyterian deacon, and Mark grew up hanging on his coattails. By the age of 10, Mark knew that he would become a pastor one day. It only took 46 more years and two more denominations to make that happen!
In his previous 30-year career, Mark was a computer systems development project manager and network security architect, most recently for Raytheon Corporation. He is married to Jean, who also attends Trinity.
