In his free time, Mark enjoys basketball, tennis, hiking, reading, and rooting for the Seahawks and Blazers. He also has been known to take cars on the road less traveled.

As the President of the Alumni Association, Mark recognizes the importance of strengthening the College for future generations of graduates and students. As part of that strengthening process, the Alumni Association will be working with the administration of the College to help increase student enrollment, bar passage rates, and job placement, all with the goal of providing a top notch Christian legal education at an affordable price. Accomplishing those priorities requires involvement from those who care about the school and are willing to be engaged in making sure that we are the educational “city on a hill” that we are called to be. Communication with alumni and offering a support system to help achieve our full potential will be a top priority.

Please contact Mark at with any questions or comments, or if you would like to become more involved.
