Mark HuntLead Pastor
Hi my name is Mark, my story here at the Living Hope Bible Church began in August 2008 when I starting serving as the Youth Pastor. I had the privilege of serving in that role for almost 6 years and I will tell you I had a blast. It was great to serve along many faithful volunteer leaders and having the opportunity to challenge and walk with the students to own their own faith was such an honour.
I stepped out of the Youth Pastor role in June 2014 sensing that it was time to move out of that current ministry. The elders and the church were very gracious to me and my family and thought it would be good to stay and continue to be part of the family here. So I served as a volunteer in other ways in the church, which included preaching, teaching small group, serving with boys club, and helping with other needs in the church. I worked alongside my dad owning and managing a commercial Beekeeping operation. It is a family owned and run business where we provide pollination services and honey for people to enjoy.
In October 2017 it was my joy to start to serve the church here in the role of Lead Pastor. It is my privilege to encourage the church through the preaching of His word and my passion is to see the people of God grow in their walk with the Lord. We want to go after an authentic walk with Jesus Christ and live for His glory.
Also a bit more about my family, I have been married to my beautiful wife Kelly since August 7, 2004 and we have four energetic boys that keep us busy. We love to camp, fish, hunt, play sports and Kelly stays busy taking care of all us boys and working with the bees and crocheting.
I want you to know that you are welcome to come and visit us here and that if you want to know more about us, or more importantly more about Jesus please give me a call.
A verse to encourage your heart is Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
