Mark grew up in an atheistic home and after his father’s death began a skeptical search for truth through science, philosophy and history, asking the big questions of life and eventually finding answers in Christianity. He felt called into pastoral ministry when he was 20 years old and in 2010 planted Village Church, which has since grown to a vibrant, multi-site church with a heart to reach the greater Vancouver area and beyond into Canada.
He blogs about theology, culture, leadership and church planting, but his passion is connecting the message of Jesus to our culture and seeing people transformed by Jesus. He’s the author of The Problem of God, Radical Sex and Paul and The Gospel of God.
