Mark and Kristin Coté were both born and raised in Pennsylvania. They met at Zion Church of Millersville, PA, where Mark has served as a pastor alongside his dad, and remains a missionary pastor. He has also served as a high school bible teacher and head of school at Lancaster County Christian School. As a family, the Cotés, with their children Caleb, Jacob, and Rachel, traveled to Peru three times between 2010 and 2013. During one of Mark’s trips in 2008, a children’s medical fund began in Pucallpa, Peru, in honor of their daughter, Victoria Grace, who is with the Lord. Her life and legacy as a testimony of God’s victory by His grace has significantly shaped their family’s being and doing (www.victoriasfund.com).
Mark completed his Doctor of Ministry in 2014 at Regent University, VA. He published his research, identifying elements that constitute missional families and how to effectively mobilize them, in his book, Think Kingdom-Be Family (www.victoriasfund.com/
