Senior Pastor Mark Wilkins was born and raised in Merrillville, making him a proud “region rat.” He has been an ordained Pastor for 25 years, and has served churches in Lakes of the Four Seasons, South Bend, and Dyer. He has been married to Jane for 25 years and they have one child, a daughter, Abigail, who is 22.
Mark is a graduate of Merrillville High School, Valparaiso University and has his Masters degree from Duke University.
Mark is someone for whom passion, joy and fun in life are still important values. He loves his vocation as a Pastor and finds great satisfaction in it, as well as his hobbies of writing, photography, and collecting 70’s rock and roll music. Mark and Jane are diehard Bears fans, and follow Duke Basketball closely.
Mark is someone who sees life in Christ as a wonderful adventure waiting to unfold each day.
