Pastor Mark


Pastor Mark VanBuren

Senior Pastor

I gave my life to Christ in March of 1993. That is when my journey began – a journey of excitement as my hunger for the Lord exploded. My God began to prepare my for a mission. I remember reading Isaiah 6 and pondering when the Lord asked “Whom shall I send? Who will go for me?” As Isaiah responded “Send me”, I had no idea that the very same type of calling would be on my life. The Lord God gave me a vision that is very simply to help build strong faith thereby making strong families by making strong disciples. It is my hearts desire to see mom’s and dad’s become stronger mom’s and dad’s in their faith by equipping them with God given tools for life through God’s Word, teaching them through the scriptures and helping them to apply this teaching to their life. That is hope for the family.
