Pastor Mark and his wife Debbie have served at Wakefield since 2007.  He retired from the Air Force in 1995 and has been in full-time ministry since 1996.  Prior to Wakefield, Pastor Mark served at Faith Bible Church in Elkridge, Maryland and Faith Fellowship Church of Perry Hall, Maryland.  Mark and Debbie have a daughter, a son, and two grandkids.
Although Pastor Mark preaches expositionally, he works hard at making the Bible clear and practical.  He believes that the Bible not only answers the question “What?” but “So what?” and “How?”.

He earned his MDiv from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, a Bachelor of Science from the University of the State of New York, and an Associates in Applied Science from the Community College of the Air Force.  He is also a graduate of the Defense Language Institute.
