Mark grew up in an un-churched family and was a skeptic most of his life. He became a Christian at the end of high school and felt called into pastoral ministry in his early twenties. In 2010 Mark planted Village Church with 16 people, which has now grown into a vibrant multi-site church of over 5000 people with locations in Vancouver and Calgary, Canada. He is passionate about contextualizing the gospel, teaching the Bible, seeing people transformed by Jesus, planting churches, and seeing the gospel advance in North American and beyond. Mark has been featured in Christianity Today and was recently featured in Outreach Magazine as one of the 26 pastors to watch in North America. He is the author of The Problem of God: Answering a Skeptics Challenges to Christianity (Zondervan, 2017), and resides in the Greater Vancouver Area with his wife and their three daughters.
