Pastor Mark Wilson was born and raised in the Lebanon/Boone County, Indiana area and graduated from Lebanon High School in 1983. Brother Mark married his wife Rhonda, in 1985.  In 1991, they were blessed with their first son, Joshua and again in 1995 with their second son Benjamin.

In his earlier years, Brother Mark spent several years working in the workforce as a certified welder, and 9 years working for Marathon Oil Co. (formerly Rock Island Refinery) in Indianapolis and 4 years working for Public Service Indiana/Duke Energy at the Cayuga generating station. In 1999, Brother Mark surrendered to the call to ministry, and he and his family moved to the campus of Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Pineville, Kentucky, where he attained his Bachelor of Arts in Ministry majoring in Bible.

Mark has also attended The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, and he affirms the Baptist Faith and Message of the  Southern Baptist Convention as a basic statement of belief.   In addition to his bachelor’s degree, Brother Mark was licensed to the ministry in 2000, ordained in 2001, and began preaching at age thirty-five.  In his spare time, Brother Mark is an avid sports fan especially when it comes to Reds baseball and loves to golf, fish and Bowl.
