Mark was born in Springfield, Ohio, as was his wife, Susan. They have been married since 1977, and are blessed with two daughters and three granddaughters.
Susan and Mark are graduates of Ohio Wesleyan University, where they each majored in English Literature. Mark also received the Master of Arts in Theology from Houston Graduate School of Theology, and the Master of Divinity in Biblical Studies and Theology from Carolina Graduate School of Divinity. He is now working on a Doctor of Ministry in Stewardship of the Word through Saint Paul Lutheran Seminary, and hopes to have that degree conferred in the spring.
Susan is retired from a career in human resources at Duke University, and another half dozen years as the Business Manager for Sola Publishing, where Mark was also the Production Editor for Sola and Connections magazine.
They are thrilled to be among the folks at St. Paul's, eager to move into the parsonage, and to get to the other side of the pandemic so that they may visit with you all more freely.
