Mark & Liane have served in missions locally and internationally from the time they committed their lives to Christ as young people.  Mark began serving his community through his involvement in a neighborhood Bible Club in an urban section of Tacoma in the mid-seventies.  He entered YWAM in 1979 attending the Discipleship Training School in Amsterdam, Holland and then traveled throughout Northern and Southern Europe with evangelism teams.  They shared the gospel in the streets through dramas and testimonies.  Mark and Liane served locally through their involvement in Young Life and their local church, at which time they met and fell in love.

Mark and Liane continued serving as a couple in their local church and with Youth With a Mission through Kings Kids and New Beginnings and as Youth Pastors for ten years on a church staff.  They have always been committed to minister as a family with their three children.  Their involvementr has taken them from Siberia to Southern Europe, Baja Mexico and Africa.  As their children were grouwing up they thought that all families enjoyed their summer vacation with a bus or plane load of people traveling somewhere to share the Gospel of Christ.

Mark has transitioned from church ministry back to Youth With a Mission as the Missions Director of Adoption Ministry.  Liane has worked as the Social Worker preparing Adoptive Famly Home studies for several years as well as being employed as a School Counselor.  Between hem, they have traveled to Ethiopia several times leading teams to serve the poorest widows and orphans in one of the least developed countries in the world.
