Mark grew up in the Goshen, Ind., area on a dairy farm. He trusted Christ at a young age but really started taking his faith seriously once he came home from college. He has been plugged into and has helped lead The Pursuit, the young adult ministry at Grace Community Church in Goshen (Jim Brown, senior pastor), for the past two years. As the recreation director at Grace Community Church, Mark enjoys using sports and the facilities at the church as tools to reach people for Christ. He leads the volunteer staff for their ministry, Open Gym, and also for the new indoor playground called The Park.

Keith is a resident-intern at Grace Church, Akron, Ohio, leading the young adult ministry called New Perspective. Keith enjoys working with young adults because it was during his college days that he decided to follow Jesus with everything and ultimately pursue ministry.
He got connected with Grace Church through Jeff Bogue speaking at his school, Lancaster Bible College. After graduation in 2013, Keith, originally from Milwaukee, Wis., moved to Ohio and joined the team.
During his residency, Keith finished his masters in organizational leadership from Capital Bible Graduate School. During his free time Keith enjoys exercising, sports, travel, reading, watching movies, and spending time with his best friend Sharlee. You may contact Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org or (414) 331-7519.
