He has served as a recreation director, worship pastor and student pastor. He has degrees from Columbus State, Liberty University and Liberty Seminary. Pastor Mark oversees our 7th through 12th grade Student Ministries, College Ministries and our Young Professionals Ministries. He has a passion for student ministry and for students to thrive in their walk with Jesus Christ. The model of discipleship that Dublin Baptist students receive is based in the Bible, unity and transparency. If we are not honest with ourselves and those around us, how can we be honest with God and his mission for us. Pastor Mark loves the passage in I Corinthians 9:19-23, stating we must become all things to all people so that we may reach some. Discipleship in Student Ministry is an evolving process, developing all people in all walks of life.
