Mark and Kristin came to Oakland Hills in 1996. They had joined the OPC in Danbury, CT at the time of their conversion over 30 years ago. Mark had worked for General Motors and was frequently transferred to new locations. Wherever they landed, they found a local OPC or PCA church to be a part of. Mark became ordained as an Elder in the PCA prior to being relocated back to their home state of Michigan. There they found OHCC and helped to form a daughter church, Covenant OPC, in Brighton, MI. In 2007, they returned to OHCC where they remain today. Mark is currently an advertising strategy executive at MRM in Birmingham, MI. He and Kristin have been married since 1987 and have two adult children. Mark enjoys hunting and has played, coached, and refereed soccer from a young age. Mark is currently on Sabbatical from serving on the Session while remaining active in other areas of service in the church.
