Jon Mark was born in Sapporo, Japan and grew up as an MK (Missionary Kid) in Southeast Asia. He gave his life to Christ at a young age and then later recommitted his heart after wrestling with the loss of his mother to cancer. Jon Mark pursued an education in Psychology at McMaster University and a teaching degree from the University of Western Ontario. Since high school, he has participated in many short-term missions trips.  After university, he was married to Sarah; and sixteen years and four beautiful kids later, resides in Dorchester. He left teaching after seven years to pursue an opportunity to serve families in the financial field.

At Summerside, Jon Mark serves as greeter and participates in a community group with his wife, Sarah. Both Sarah and he share a passion to thrive through a deepening personal walk with Jesus, delving into His Word, and experiencing the power of prayer.  Jon Mark is seeking daily to understand more what it means to, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will bring you strength.” Proverbs 3:5-6
