Mark grew up in a Christian home, his father being the pastor of Trinity Baptist Church Maryport, Cumbria. and
he was converted at a young age. In 1993, Mark went to Aberystwyth to study law. It was during this time that he began to consider
whether the Lord was calling him into the ministry. Upon completing his law degree, the church at Maryport sent him to study at the
London Theological Seminary.
In September 1999 Mark was ordained to the ministry and inducted as the Assistant Pastor of Deeside Evangelical Christian Church
in North East Wales. In February 2004 Mark accepted a call to the pastorate of Geneva Road Evangelical Baptist Church, Darlington.
