Senior Pastor

Mark Simpson

Mark has been at MorningStar since May 2009. Prior to coming to MorningStar Mark served in churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia in various pastoral roles from youth and family ministry, to music and administration, to Lead Pastor. His education includes Word of Life Bible Institute, Moody Bible Institute (B. A.), Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A.R., M.Div., Th.M.), and Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary (D. Min.).

Mark is madly in love with his wife Holly and head over heels for his kids Mackenzie and Ethan (Charlie the dog brings quite a bit of joy too). They are the greatest source of joy God has blessed him with. Their unconditional love is a constant reminder of the infinitely greater love and grace of God.

“As far as everything else is concerned, anything worth saying about me is because of the work of God in my life. If I’ve accomplished something it’s because He has carried me through and empowered me. Any talent or ability is ultimately from Him and therefore I pray I use it for Him and His praise, not my own.”
