Mark Mickelson serves as an elder in Spokane, Washington, and serves on the Council of Elders for the United Church of God. He retired from the full-time employed ministry in December 2017.
Mark and his wife, Michelle, were married in 1981, having both attended Ambassador College, and their three children are now grown and on their own.
As a pastor, he most recently served the congregations in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho and those in West and Central Africa (Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Congo). Working with youth and young adults over the years has been a very important part of his focus.
