Pastor Mark

Mark Saunders is the Lead Pastor of Bay Life Church. He’s a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and Dallas Theological Seminary in Texas.

He met his wife, Eleanor, in college and they have three children, Ben, Cooper, and Kye, who are all in their 20's.

If you ask him, Mark will tell you that “he is a work in progress" and a grateful daily recipient of God’s amazing grace. When he’s not preaching, he enjoys a round of golf, time with his bride and kids, and working on projects around the house (not really, but he tries). 

Mark has been leading Bay Life since September 2004 and has seen God work in amazing ways to redeem, restore, and renew the people who gather here each week. After a decade of seeing all that God has done in the lives and families in our community, Mark is excited to see what God will do through Bay Life Church in the next ten years.

Mark is always eager to speak with “Lifers" and guests, so come say hello to him in “The Corner” after one of our weekend services — he’d love to meet you!
