Mark Warren has served as pastor of Trace Creek Baptist Church since December, 2000.  He has a desire to see lives transformed by renewed minds and hearts through Jesus.  He received a Bachelor of Arts from Union University, Jackson, TN and a Master of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft. Worth, TX.  He was pastor at churches in Texas and North Carolina prior to coming to Trace Creek. Mark and his wife Susan have three sons:  Logan, Andrew and Brady.  His interests and hobbies include: singing, college football, geography and meteorology. Mark's salvation experience occurred at an early age and during his freshman year of college he sensed God's call to vocational ministry. For the past several years, the Lord has taught him many things about ministry and the depth and opportunity for application of the scripture have come alive for him. His view of the body of Christ reaching a lost community and world has only sharpened an already strong view of missions and evangelism.  His hope is that God will use the truths and ministry skills with which He has equipped him to greatly impact lives for Christ.
