The Clergy

THE REV MARK AVERA

Vicar

Married to Joy for over 30 years.  Still intoxicated with her love.  Five outrageously wonderful (grown) children.  Grandfather of the cutest little guy ever.  In ordained ministry for 20 years.  Love family, friends, books, good beer, well-turned phrases, and seeing lives transformed.

Came to Christ by way of an uncle's prayer, a friend's invitation, a well-aimed sermon, the music of Keith Green, and a gaggle of coincidences that weren't really coincidences at all.
