This weekend our church welcomed our newest team member, Mark Young. Mark was affirmed as the Children’s Minister for our Central Campus. We are extremely excited to have Mark and his family apart of our FBCJAX family.
In case you did not have a chance to meet Mark and his wife, here is a 30k flyover. First, Mark has been married to Rachel for 18 years. They have three kids, Abigail, Caleb and Ethan, who are triplets and are all 14 years old. Mark has been serving within the local church since the mid 90’s as a small group/Sunday school teacher. In 2003, Mark surrendered his life to full-time ministry. He then left his corporate career of 20 years in finance and became a Minister to Children and Young Families.
Mark will be responsible for leading our FirstKids team and environments at our central campus. He will work with our already incredible team to continue in partnering with families to disciple the next generation. Mark will be a great addition to our Family Ministry Team and we are looking forward to how God uses his passions and gifts to advance the Gospel in the next generation.
Here is a quick note from Mark,
“Rachel and I are so excited, honored, and humbled to be a part of the FBCJax family. I am looking forward to seeing what God has planned for the children and families through this amazing opportunity to be your Children’s Minister. Thank you for the warm welcome you have already given to our family. I can’t wait to get started.”
Please be praying for Mark and his family as they begin their transition from Texas to NC.
