As a longtime member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Mark exemplifies servant leadership. He volunteers as an assisting minister and reader for worship services, and has been a dedicated member of our planning council for several years. As our treasurer, he not only keeps the church finances in order, but at annual meeting time is also able to effectively communicate to our congregation what all those complicated budgeting and expense documents actually mean.

Mark also plays in Trinity’s Chapel Ringers handbell choir, which helps keep his arms in shape for his favorite sport, basketball. His regular job is in insurance claims processing.
