  • How long have you known Mark?6 years or so
  • Three words to describe Mark: insightful, winsome, passionate
  • If Mark created a nickname for you, what is it and where did it come from?

    Petey-used by various friends over the years but it is a very effective and warm nickname that I still enjoy. It is fun to have it used by Mark!

  • Funny memory with Mark:

    I wasn't there but the constant telling, retelling and joking about the day Greg Howell took the plunge off the cliff at the lake in Alabama. It is one story that I can enjoy even though I wasn't there. I think Mark gets more joy telling of Greg's jump than Greg has even gotten.

  • How has Mark impacted your life?

    I appreciate the friendship that started with Mark at Willy's many years ago.. From that first meeting, I could tell that Mark walks with the Lord and lives out of this spiritual base in how he approaches life. He has impacted me by his concern, care and guidance over these years. We don't as much time together but when we do, it is below the surface and hitting good issues life. I appreciate the way he can get things going with a good question or insight that can make for a lively conversation.

  • What do you think Mark’s legacy will be? What is his lasting imprint on the world?

    Raising up men who love Jesus and are seeking to honor Him with their lives! I've seen him commit this to the vision of his work at Buckhead Church as well as living it out daily with his boys! Way to go, Mark!!!!
