Fr. Mark and his wife, Michelle met in the rooms of recovery and were rather convinced Jesus was not the Way. That began to change after Mark reluctantly attended an Alpha Course when invited by a friend in recovery. Shortly afterwards they were married and became members at St. Paul’s in Bakersfield, CA. After graduating from Trinity School for Ministry in 2008 Mark served as the Assistant of Shepherd’s Heart, a church to the poor and homeless in inner city Pittsburgh. They moved back to Bakersfield with the vision of planting a church that also actively reached out to those in need. Mark has served as the Assistant of Trinity Anglican Church since 2011, and this new work is an extension of Trinity’s mission. Mark and Michelle are the proud parents of Noah (11), Daniel (9), and Ali (6).
