Mark has spent most of his life living in Fairbanks, Alaska since he moved up here when he was 4. After leaving to go away to Western Baptist College for a few years, Mark returned with his wife Diana to make Fairbanks their home. He has been helping with the youth group at Bethel since 2005 and since then has transitioned from volunteer to intern to Youth Pastor. It has been incredible to see God’s plan unfold as he now leads the same youth group he was once a student in.
Mark and Diana have two high energy little girls that keep their lives busy and entertaining. Mark is a passionate sports fan and an avid indoorsman. He is a videogame nerd at heart but doesn’t get to play as much as he used to. When he can find the time Mark enjoys training for and competing in marathons and triathlons.
