Background

Prior to becoming President of MB Seminary, Mark was a Pastor at Westwood Church for ten years (Lead Pastor for the last six), and before that he was a Regional Manager for the provincial government in the area of land development. Mark has taught at public, private, and Christian universities, both in the classroom and online. In addition, Mark has been a chaplain in hospital, prison, and university sports contexts.

My classes helped show me what I was passionate about and where my strengths are. But primarily I was encouraged by conversations with professors. They went above and beyond to encourage me and help me get the most from my experience at Briercrest.
