Mark’s vision for ministry is that St. Andrew would be a dynamic model for Christian outreach and spiritual support for a changing world. “I see a place where people of all ages and cultures can be touched by the reality of God’s love through the ministries we share and find an atmosphere of acceptance, celebration, and authentic spiritual encouragement in our community of faith.”
