Mark Cox (Associate Pastor of Community Life): 

Mark C. grew up in San Bruno, CA and became a Christian as a teenager after a friend gave him a New Testament and challenged him to read it. Somewhere around chapter 7 of The Book of Matthew, Mark's eyes were opened to the truth of Jesus and life has never been the same since. 

After college, Mark taught high school English for several years before feeling the call into ministry. Around the same time, he also met his sweetheart, Lori, and they were married in 2001. Mark worked as a youth pastor and associate pastor at other churches on the Peninsula before finding a home at Good News Chapel, which is just a few blocks from their house in South City. In 2011 Mark and Lori's first son, Gregory, was born and they are so thankful to be raising him in such a loving church family.

In addition to being an Associate Pastor, Mark also teaches guitar and is a stay-at-home dad (which is the best job ever!). He enjoys music, cooking, gardening, rooting for the San Francisco Giants, and walking with friends.
