Pastor Mark & Kristin
Building community in Licking County
Mark was raised in reared in Akron Ohio before heading off to Bible School in Florida where he would spend the next 18 years of his life in ministry and raising his family. Mark and his wife Kristin have three kids, two of whom currently attend Granville Christian Academy! Mark and Kristin have been married for 23 years. As a family they enjoy tent camping, hiking, and being outdoors as well as LAN gaming. Mark has been in his role here at Spring Hills Church for 10 years as an Associate Pastor to Students and LOVES watching students become more passionate about their faith and to get involved in finding their ministry. One of the greatest rewards is to watch student's faith come alive as they discover Christ and His love. Our ministry focuses on not only helping students discover Jesus but to find community as well. His wife Kristin plays an active role in both counseling and discipleship of our high school and middle school ministries. Mark has been in student ministry for over 23 years and in college was part of an improv comedy show that aired on local networks.
Overall, we want to bring an understanding of God's desire to build a relationship with teens through relevant teaching and discipleship. We seek outreach through events like Nerf Wars, Summer Camps, Box Retreats, Spring Break Retreats, etc. We also instill a strong sense of missions through international and local missions opportunities.
