The enthusiasm that Pastor Marc shares is truly infectious. As Lead Pastor, he has a passion for sharing the eternal, life-changing love of Jesus with people who think they’re far from God, while equipping others to do the same. Over the last decade, his relational love for Jesus and for the people of our community has helped many to feel at home in our St. John family with a prayerful desire for the Lord to continue having His way among us.

In his free time, Pastor Marc adores time with his beautiful family (wife Shane, and young adult daughters Abby and Katy), pedaling thousands of annual miles as an avid cyclist, and dreaming of the Minnesota Vikings one day winning a Super Bowl.

2 Timothy 1:7-8
[F]or God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God.
