Rev. Mark has been the pastor of Christ Church since July, 2008.   A lawyer for 20 years, before hearing God's call into ministry, he graduated from Yale Divinity School and is ordained in the United Church of Christ. 

Previously he served as the Associate Minister of a church in Connecticut.  He and his wife Barbara have been married for 30 years and have grown twins, Sean and Blair.   A devoted Mets fan, he has learned the spiritual virtue of patience. 

Mark is especially interested in worship, small group ministry and always exploring ways to be the church God calls us to be.  The following are some excerpts from his statement of faith:

"I believe that people go to church to hear a word of hope and healing; to feel truly connected to a loving and caring community and to find a place where they can live out their faith in moving and real ways.  More and more in our day, I believe people are seeking something more fulfilling than what our culture tells us is good.  The church of our time needs to speak boldly about a different path and different way of seeing the world.

"I feel called to draw people closer to God and help those I pastor to find and use the gifts God has given them.  My own sense of being where God has now led me, using the gifts he has given me, is a wonderful one, and one I want others to feel.  The passion I feel being in such a place is what I feel called to help others find".
