MARK SCHUITEMA, EXECUTIVE PASTOR
As the Executive Pastor, Mark oversees the staff team and the ministries of the church. His role includes executing the vision and mission of the church, helping staff grow and develop in their roles, shepherding the congregation as an elder of Pennington Park, and working to care for the facilities and stewarding the resources and finances of the church in a way that honors God and serves our body.
Mark has been married to his wife Emily for 22 years. They have 4 children: Will, Eleanor, Owen and Henry. They love to be outdoors and spend time as a family—often watching their kids compete in golf events. Mark and Emily have a passion for discipleship and equipping Christ followers to walk with Jesus for a lifetime. They love coming alongside young couples and families as they strive to build a gospel-centered foundation that will endure and bear fruit for the generations to come.
