Mark was born in Cleveland, Tennessee and moved with his family to Billings in 1981. Being a pastor’s kid and growing up around the things of God, Mark came to know the Lord at a very young age. His passion for the Lord continues to grow as he desires is to see people change through the power of having a personal relationship with Christ. Mark especially loves mentoring and teaching men to be everything God has called them to be.

Before working exclusively at New Life Church, Mark worked in the printing industry for almost 20 years. He completed the New Life Church Ministers-In-Training Bible School, a 2-year program, and was ordained on January 25th, 1998. Mark became the Associate Pastor in 2005 while still working full-time in the printing industry. He later quit the printing industry in 2007 to serve full time at the church.

Mark married the woman of his dreams, Jennifer, in 1993. Mark and Jennifer have 2 children, Jalen and Sydney, of whom they desire to see succeed in everything they do as they walk with the Lord. His passions include knowing God, knowing God’s word, and bearing much fruit as New Life Church and the rest of the Kingdom of God become everything they are supposed to be.
