He received a Master of Church Music degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth.
Mark served as Minister of Music at Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Commerce, Calvary Baptist Church in Gainesville, and Oates Drive Baptist Church in Mesquite before beginning an over twenty year career with Texas Health and Human Services.
In 1974 Mark married Eleene Davis of Wills Point whom he met in “Life of Christ” class in college. They were blessed with a daughter, Marleene Elizabeth. Mark and Eleene were married almost 45 years.
