Our Story

Mark & Angela

Our grace journey began over 20 years ago after a move to Mississippi to attend graduate school brought us to a little non-denominational church called New Covenant Church. It was at that church we met a peculiar people – people who had joy, people who were hospitable, people who accepted us as instant friends. God took us 850 miles away from home, and everything familiar, to show us He had more in store for us. One step of grace at a time.

We have been married for 23 years. We have lived in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Florida since getting married in 1999, each move another chapter in the story we hope to share over time. We have four beautiful children, two obnoxious chihuahua pups, and we enjoy spending time with all of them! Both of us taught in the education system prior to becoming parents. And then the one thing you never expect to do as parents – we decided to home-school! After years of serving in various capacities in the local church, Mark in hospitality and church leadership, Angela as a worship leader and children’s director, we were ordained, bringing us to a new chapter in ministry life. This life has been anything but quiet, but we are excited to begin a new journey with you – a journey of Braving Grace!
