'Youngster' Mark sees Moderatorship as a way to serve
At 42, Cornerstone church minister Mark Powell is set to become the third youngest Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of NSW's General Assembly. He tells KAREN THORNTON, it's a nomination he could not decline.
When Cornerstone Strathfield associate minister Mark Powell was contacted by the Clerk of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of NSW(PCNSW),Rev Dr Paul Logan, and told he had been nominated to take on the role of Moderator of the PCNSW General Assembly in 2014, he was in shock!
Mark, who is 42 now but will be 43 by the time the Assembly Opens at PLC Sydney in July, thought a lot about his church and family commitments (he has six kids including a baby) but
knew that it was a job he should accept, "Christ College principal Ian Smith said to me some years ago that as Presbyterian ministers we are a servant of the court of the Church; so if the court asks us to do something, then we should do it, and not decline," he says, juggling baby Noah on his knee as we chat in his Sydney home.
With the July Assembly not too far away, Mark says that, while somewhat daunted, he is also really looking forward to it."At the end of the day, the role of the Moderator is fairly well set out.
Mark sees the third major opportunity for him as Moderator as being involved in written communications, whether through the column he will pen for the Pulse or other means. He likes the idea of blogging and is involved with AP (Australian Presbyterian) magazine.
Those who knew Mark growing up might be somewhat surprised at his current role but Mark is confident that God has him precisely where He wants him.
"I was born in Box Hill NSW, near Dural, and came from a devout Roman Catholic family which attended mass once a week and sent me for a privateCatholicschooleducation,"hesays."When I was younger I was seriously considering becoming a teaching brother. But my mum was a semi-professional tennis player and I inherited her abilities on the court. In fact, Dad built her a tennis court and so I had no option but to play tennis."
At the end of high school Mark was offered a tennis scholarship to the United States to play on the university circuit and given the choice between Oklahoma State or Christ College Irvine (a Lutheran University) - "In my mind it was a choice basically between cornfields or Disneyland", he said. He chose Disneyland.
By now married, Mark became Dad to Joshua, now 16 and Hannah, now 14 before he exited to his first parish role in Wee Waa.
Mark spent five years at Cornerstone Concord. Then two years ago was part of a merger between St David's Presbyterian Church Strathfield and Concord.
"We have seen significant growth and God has really blessed a good co-operative work," he says. Baby Noah was born a year ago.
Sadly,Mark's mother died"still angry at me"but his father joined a Presbyterian church in Glenwood and died 18 months later, now five years ago a Christian.
With a busy church and family, Mark doesn't have much time for other activities, and is sad he recently had to give up cycling due to a back injury.
"I like walking with my wife, which we do every Monday and I am enjoying teaching my 16 year old son how to drive. ith five to go - they have to do 120 hours each at the wheel - I have a fair few to get through!
With Assembly just a few months away, Mark is eagerly researching his role and praying for guidance on how to execute it.

Mark Powell Ministerial Intern
Mark joined the staff of Speedway Christian Church in August, 2007 as our ministerial intern during his final year in seminary. A native Chicagoan, Mark was born and raised Roman Catholic. He studied for the priesthood at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa graduating with a political science degree in 1980. After college, Mark was appointed to the American seminary at the Vatican for graduate theological study. After his first year in Rome, he left the seminary and had a successful 20 year career in radio broadcasting in Illinois, Kansas and Michigan. In 2000, he joined the staff of the Michigan House of Representatives serving as chief of staff to the chair of the Health Policy Committee. In 2002, he became protestant and three years later began his studies at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis. He served as the student associate minister at First Christian Church in Crawfordsville, IN in his first year of seminary. When Mark is not around the church or the seminary, he is with his wife Dona enjoying a movie, playing video games with his "tweener" daughter or on the golf course!
At the end of August 2011, ..., 16 April 2012 [cached]
At the end of August 2011, our pastor of eight and a half years, Mark Powell, accepted a call to a church in the USA and we have been without a pastor/elder since.
The mid-week Bible study is turning out to be a time where the men of the church that so desire, exercise their gifts at leading the Bible study going through the gospel of Mark.
