Mark Singleton is a child of God.
When writing a bio, I know I’m supposed to write it in third-person. I just felt the “lame” meter climbing as I started to act like I have a receptionist or co-worker writing this. I guess the first thing to say is what I find my identity in.
I don’t find it in my family name, though I love my family.
I don’t find it in my employment because that’s likely to always be changing.
I also don’t find it in my social circles. Because as you get to know me, you realize that my social circles are usually pretty extreme differences.
I find my identity in the God that I follow and my relationship to him. I am his child. He adopted me. And that is who I am…
Now that I feel super spiritual, I will share a little bit of actually who I am in personality and character.
I am a husband to an amazing, awesome woman named Kendra. I get to be apart of the raising of four really fun and energetic children: Adrian, Justyss, Jonathan and Keziah. I am apart of an awesome church family in Louisville KY called New Breed Church.
When I was 17 God called me to ministry within urban area’s. Since then I have also affirmed a calling to the Pastorate. I am excited about the road ahead. In the past I have been involved with ministries in Cambodia, India and Poland as well with inner-city ministries in Indianapolis, New York, Chicago, Cleveland and Louisville. I have worked with Homeless Shelters, Refugee Communities, Orphanages, Slum churches, Community Centers, Salvation Army’s and Boys and Girls Clubs. I have attended the Word of Life Bible Institute in Up-State New York and am finishing my Bachelors Degree in Biblical And Theological Studies at Boyce College. I am also a graduate of the DeVos Urban Leadership Initiative which trains and empowers Urban Youth Workers.
I say nothing in boasting but in thankfulness for every step of the journey.
