On Mother’s Day weekend May 7 and 8, please welcome Mark Crumpler, our new Designated Associate Pastor for Worship and Formation. Mark’s vocational journey has included serving as a hospital chaplain and teaching Bible at the college level in both full-time and adjunct positions. His greatest love, however, aside from being a dad and a husband, is the pastoral work of shepherding and leading God’s people in the local church. Growing up in the home of a pastor, Mark can’t remember a time when the church was not an anchoring presence in his life. Mark’s pastoral ministry is grounded in a desire to blend the life of the mind with the love of God. He discovered a love for theological study in an introductory college course in Christian doctrine. After receiving his B.A. in English from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, Mark did his M.Div and Ph.D work at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Mark’s great joy in ministry is the unfolding of biblical truth in a way that allows people to meet God in life changing ways.
Mark will be preaching in all five weekend services.
