A few words from Pastor Mark

“I am very excited for where our church is headed. We call ourselves a Matthew 28 church, as our primary focus is making disciples of Jesus Christ. We achieve this through Worship, Bible Study, and Fellowship. We are a family church who want to reach out to our community with the love of Jesus Christ. I love engaging with people about culture and faith and where those roads intersect.

I love hanging out with my girls and my cat Pepe (who is the only other male in my family). I play hockey twice a week and I cheer for the Detroit Red Wings with a great passion. I even have a scoring horn in my basement for when my Wings score a goal! I love Starbucks and you can find me with one in my hand on a frequent basis.

I enjoy catching up on the news and of course ESPN. I love reading anything by Andy Stanley, Francis Chan or Donald Miller. 'Captain America- The Winter Soldier' is my current favorite movie but that changes on an ongoing basis.”
