Mark Darling has been a pastor, leader, church planter, conference speaker, counselor and teacher since 1986. He was a co-founder of Evergreen Church, The Rock and The Urban Refuge. He has not only helped open the door for others to discover and serve Christ, but he is characterized as a passionate, influential, motivating, insightful and dynamic speaker.
His passion is to see the next generation know the real God, grow real faith and take real action. His mission is to make Christ attractive to the world. That Christians would want to love and follow Christ and the non-Christian would want to know and trust Jesus Christ! Changing lives is his passion and prayer.
Mark is also passionately committed to equip and motivate fathers and mothers in raising and training children who will embrace Jesus Christ and become committed disciples of Christ.
Mark has been married since 1979 and lives in Eagan, Minn., with his wife, Kathy. He is the father of four, all of whom are now married to wonderful christian spouses, and the proud grandfather of 11! Mark is currently pastoring The Rock in Minneapolis, Minn., where he serves alongside his children and their spouses and a team of wonderful young men and women committed to reaching the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
