More About Pastor Mark
Mark married his wife, Chantelle, in August 1991. They have two sons, John Mark and Noah.
Mark grew up as the “P.K.” or “preacher’s kid” of Rev. John and Carol Foster. John and Carol served United Methodist Churches in Oklahoma for more than 40 years and are currently enjoying retirement.
Before entering the ministry, Mark worked as a television reporter and producer for the National Broadcasting Company, better known as NBC. While in theology school at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Mark worked as the “Minister to Visitors” at Highland Park UMC, a 12,000-member church that has been one of the largest United Methodist Churches in the country. Also, while in Dallas, Mark had the opportunity to help more than 1,000 people commit or recommit their life to Christ.
As an experienced church planter, Dr. Mark Foster leads the efforts to give birth to daughter churches that will one day be healthy enough to have children of their own.
