Pastor Mark Smith
Faith Tabernacle Church is blessed to have Mark Smith is our associate Pastor. After a tremendous encounter with the Lord a few years ago, Mark was reminded that God had called him to be a pastor when he was a young man. He has proven himself to be incredibly loyal to God and to the body of Christ.
It is not uncommon to see this Pastor in tears
Pastor Mark continues to have amazing encounters with the Lord Jesus. As a result, he brings a zeal and love for the brethren, nurturing them into a holy life with God. Pastor Mark walks in healing and deliverance and has been given great wisdom from above. Using his additional gift of word of knowledge, Mark looks right through the clutter of sin in people, which leads them to be set free of their chains. God has used this man to set many of those held captive by their sin to be free. One of the greatest attributes of Pastor Mark is his love of the Godhead. It is not uncommon to see this Pastor in tears before God.
Both Pastors work very closely together which has formed a tremendous team in ministry. They have both been to Kenya recently and saw hundreds if not thousands saved. They would wake up every morning to find people waiting for them outside to be healed. Many of those people had walked all night long to find these men. Both pastors have their hearts set to save and heal lives through Christ.
Pastor Mark comes from a large family and is blessed to have a father and mother who are sold out believers in Christ. His wife Jeanette is also an ordained minister and is part of the church leadership team. They have five children and all of them are doing well in life.
