Rev'd Mark Faris-Robertson - Pastor

Revd Mark Faris-Roberston

After many "years of adventure" in the world, and a series of what he describes as "miraclous events" in his middle years, our new Pastor, Revd Mark Faris-Robertson, felt the strong call of God upon his life.

Mark describes the experience of God's forgiveness as the greatest joy in his life and this led him to the conviction that he must follow and serve the Lord who had saved him.

As a result, between 2005 and 2008, Mark trained for the Baptist Ministry at Spurgeon's Collrge in London and received the Divinities Degree. He was ordained in Margate Kent in 2008 and excercised his first pastorate in a nearby Baptist Church for more than six years.

Mark is very happily married to Susan who is, (unlike Mark!) very practical and a great support to him. Mark and Susan arrived in Rossendale in January and were greeted by heavy snow and the warmest of Lancastrian welcomes. It is Mark's prayer and expectation that the LORD will
bless and prosper His people and the work of Sion Baptist Church.
