Pastor Mark Lawrence
Currently in my 9th year as Pastor here at St Paul’s UMC. I am very happy to be part of this rural community. My childhood was spent growing up in a similar community in rural Pennsylvania. The son of a dairy farmer and truck driver I learned a strong work ethic early in my life.
I am currently a bi-vocational pastor serving Mt Vernon and St Paul’s United Methodist Churches. I completed my 5 year Course of Study at Duke Divinity School.
I operate my business selling Advertising Specialties primarily screen printed and embroidered garments.
I have been happily married to my wife Georgia for 22 years. Most people know her as “Sally” and she is the light of my life. Sally has been a true partner in ministry and is a huge asset to our church. Sally has two children Michael and Melanie from a previous marriage. I also have two sons John and Paul from a previous marriage. all of our children are grown and mostly on their own.
