St. Mark’s New Youth Minister

It is with great joy I welcome Sean Forrest and family (wife Julie, kids Liam, Erin, and Hannah) to St Mark’s! Sean will be our new youth minister beginning midsummer.

Sean has been a youth minister for several years before going out on the retreat circuit in the New England area and starting his own mission, viz. www.Haiti180.com. He is a nationally known speaker and retreat director, giving many talks at Steubenville conferences and lately our own ICYC this year!
