Mark Artrip, pastor of Movement Church, a Charis Fellowship congregation in Hilliard, Ohio, has been recognized by CE National for Impacting the Rising Generation.
Timothy Kurtaneck, CE National’s director of church relations and youth leadership training, presented the award on Sunday, April 15, during a worship service at Movement Church.
Artrip is a graduate of CE National’s The National Institute, an Operation Barnabas leader, and a key contributor for years in production and programming at the Momentum Youth Conference. Artrip was nominated for the award because the church he pastors focuses on the next generation knowing and following God. Leaders in his church didn’t tell Artrip he was receiving the award to make it a surprise during the morning church service.
TK shared, “Mark loves God and he loves people, especially the next generation. He is a terrific model of someone who sees the needs of those around him, especially the young, and works diligently on how they can come to know Christ and be trained up to follow Him. Mark has been, and continues to be, a blessing to many.”
