I’m Mark and I serve as the director of our small group ministries at GPBC. I love seeing people follow Jesus more closely as they are encouraged and form bonds with other Jesus followers. I also have a passion for mentoring small group leaders and helping them grow into mature shepherds.
I grew up in Portland and have been a part of the community at GPBC since I was a student at Wilson High School. I attended college outside of Chicago where I met and fell in love with my wife, Janet. We have two wonderful children: Rachel and Peter. I work as a clinical psychologist specializing in marriage therapy.
When there’s free time, I enjoy hiking with my family, traveling, eating chocolate (especially dark chocolate), playing golf (or trying, at least), and cheering for UO football (Go Ducks!).
