My great passion is to see men and women equipped in understanding, character, conviction and skill for the remarkable privilege of participating in God’s great mission of bringing men and women from every nation into the kingdom of his Son. I am convinced that study at Moore College is one the very best ways to be so equipped. Apart from College I enjoy family life, friendship, reading, movies, gentle exercise and meeting with God’s people at St Andrew’s Cathedral on Sundays. I am involved in a number of ways with the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, chiefly as the Chair of the Sydney Diocesan Doctrine Commission. I have also been involved with the GAFCON movement from its beginning, serving on its Theological Commission and Statement Group. Before teaching at College I served on the staff of two churches in Sydney (St Swithun’s Pymble and St Luke’s Dapto). I have served as Principal of the College since 2013.
Family: Mark is married to Kathryn, and they have four daughters: Elizabeth, Anna, Rachel and Mary.
