Pastor Mark is the visionary of ABC. He has been pastoring for over twenty years, beginning as a youth pastor, moving into an associate pastor role, and then becoming the executive director at Love, INC Tri-Cities for two years. He has been the senior pastor at Allendale Baptist Church since 2014.

He met his wife Angie in 1987 when they both worked at New York Carpet World. They have three children, two granddaughters, and two grandsons. Mark enjoys spending time with his family, reading, and running (not at the same time). He also has a strange affinity for Barney Fife.
