Along with his Pastoral office, Pastor Mark also operates in the ministry office of a Teacher. He teaches the uncompromising Word of God with God’s ability, God’s weight, God’s authority, and God’s power. His down-to-earth approach and practical illustrations clearly present the truths of God’s Word. He shares from practical, first-hand experience how Christians can apply God’s Word to the circumstances and problems of life and walk in victory.
Pastor Mark has been in the ministry for over 32 years. Pastor Mark and his wife have committed themselves to see people set free from the yoke of bondage; to bring healing to the sick; to cause finances to come to those in need; to bring God’s compassionate love to the broken-hearted; and to bring men, women and children to the knowledge of the Truth, so they may come from religion to reality – from milk to meat – and from captivity to total freedom, and bring themselves out of the snares of the adversary. Our Pastors believe that all it takes is One Word from God and you will never be the same again!
Pastors Mark and Cheryl are dedicated to teaching their congregation how to take the Word of God from the Bible and “apply it to their lives.” They teach with simplicity using practical examples to demonstrate that the Bible is God’s Will for our life and it’s His Word speaking to us.
Pastor Mark is originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, where he was born and raised.

Pastor Mark is a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Pastors Mark & Cheryl have been married for 36 years. Pastor Cheryl wholly supports her husband in the ministry, as she stands by his side. They both dedicated their lives to the Lord just before they were married. They believed that the only way their family would work is by giving their family to God, but first, they gave themselves! They have 4 adult children and 9 grandchildren. Their children in some form or another have participated in the ministry.
