Jr. High Director
 
"As Jr. High Director, I lead FBC's ministry to 7th and 8th graders. Together with a group of adult volunteers, we study the Bible, pray, play games, and do lots of other crazy things that jr. high kids enjoy! The Jr. High Ministry is a safe place for the kids where relationships to each other and to the Lord  can flourish. It is an unspeakable privilege to invest in the lives of these young people!"

We must thank Mark for his fine duties of cleanliness. Have you ever stepped into the church rest room to be knocked down by the pine-scented cleaner aroma billowing from the stall. It doesn’t happen by itself. Thank You Mark!
