Elder Mark Lease
Mark was born and raised in Wisconsin, living and growing up in smaller communities around the Madison area. While a student at the University of Wisconsin he began searching for meaning to life that went beyond the noble things of an education and family. In 1982 he turned his attention to answering the questions, “Is there a God and if there is what is the truth about God?” Desiring nothing but the truth Mark made a commitment to turn from his sin and to Jesus Christ, believing that if Jesus was real He would come into Mark’s life and he would know it. On a Saturday night in July of 1982 he had a life changing encounter with Jesus.
Accepting a job transfer Mark moved his family to Arizona in 2009 where he is employed as an electrical engineer. He is married to Anne, his wife of 28 years. Their son Gabe attends Arizona State University. Together Mark, Anne and Gabe have served in several churches in the Midwest before becoming members of Two Rivers Church in 2009.
