Mark and Kris have 3 children and have been attending PBC for 8 years. Mark accepted Christ at age 9 during a Billy Graham crusade in Denver, Colorado and was later baptized at what would be their home church in Texas. Mark and Kris are and have been involved in many areas of PBC over the years: small groups, children’s ministry, youth ministry, choir, missions, and prayer. Currently, they just returned from a mission trip to Bolivia and serve by covering the second service in prayer twice a month. Mark and Kris have an incredible testimony that speaks to God’s relentless love and pursuit of us at all times. In Mark’s own words: “…let me say that Mark Wichern, in his own strength can do very little good, but Christ in me, “the hope of Glory”(Col 2) can accomplish all God intends for His honor and glory. Jesus Christ truly is my Savior, Lord and Life.”
My wife and I both grew up in Tyler, TX and attended Dallas Baptist University. Christ became my Lord and Savior at a Vacation Bible School in Chapel Hill, TX when I was 8 years old and He began to call me into ministry when I was 14. I earned a bachelors in Business Management from DBU and went on to receive my Masters of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. I served at Crossroads Christian Church in Grand Prairie, TX from October 2003-October 2006 before I was called to PBC as the youth pastor in that same month. I officially transitioned into my current role in February 2012. My passion for ministry is to lead people to know Jesus as both Savior and Lord and to discover the purpose for which God created them. Natalie and I have been married since February 2008 and have 3 children.
