About Us

Mark and Kristin fully enjoy life together with their three children, Caleb, Jacob and Rachel. Mark holds Doctor of Ministry and Master of Divinity degrees from Regent University, VA. His doctoral research centered on missional family wholeness, characteristics, and mobilization. Married for over 25 years, as parents of their children, and with Mark as a doctor of the Church—they seek to support healthy and faithful presence in the Body of Christ.

Mark now serves as the Director of Safe Place Ministry, and Kristin as the Administrative Director (www.safeplaceministry.org). With Kristin’s mutual support and participation, he is also a pastor at Hershey Church of the Nazarene. ​Before returning to Pennsylvania in 2023, their family lived as missionaries in Peru and then moved to Valparaiso, Indiana. Mark has written one book (Think Kingdom—Be Family, Xulon Press, 2014) and is working on another for his children, based on the testimony and legacy of Victoria Grace, their daughter who lived for six days after her birth in 2008. It is their family’s great joy and privilege to steward Victoria’s story and ministry through Victoria’s Little Lambs Fund.
