Our New Pastor
Mark Waite has joined our church as our pastor. Pastor Waite and his family recently returned to the United States after completing an eighteen-month mission project in the West African nation of Cameroon.
Mark, his wife Nancy, and four of their children have moved to Manchester and Mark's first service as our pastor was April 28th.
The Waites also have a daughter serving in the Coast Guard, a son serving in the Army, and a son who is graduating from Union University in Tennessee.
In Cameroon, the Waites worked to restore an orphanage that had fallen into disrepair and ministered to the Fulbe people. They also started a ministry to provide missionary training for local believers, known as CM3T (Centers for Missionary Training, Tactics & Theology).
Pastor Waite holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the Baptist Bible College of Pennsylvania and a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Studies from the Tyndale Theological Seminary. Prior to his family’s mission in Cameroon, Mark was the Senior Teaching Pastor at the Covenant of Grace Bible Church in Edgewood, New Mexico. He has served in the U.S. Coast Guard, the New Mexico National Guard, and as a law enforcement officer.
Why not come meet Mark, Nancy, their kids, and the rest of the Northshire Baptist family.
