Dr. Mark and Priscilla Young have been engaged in the mission of God together for 37 years. Currently, they live in Littleton, CO, where Mark serves as president of Denver Seminary. They were involved in theological training and local church ministry as missionaries with WorldVenture in Eastern Europe from 1981-1995. The last seven of those years were spent in Poland where Mark was the founding academic dean of Evangelical Theological Seminary. From 1995 to 2009 Mark was professor of world missions and intercultural studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. Priscilla worked in the Dallas Seminary Foundation during that time, and they also ministered at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas. Mark and Priscilla have three grown children (with three wonderful spouses) and delight in being Grammy and Papa to five (and counting) precious grandchildren, all still in the Dallas area. They love engaging in the seminary community and their church; they enjoy skiing, hiking, fly-fishing and Colorado scenery and weather. They have many opportunities to travel together, meeting and encouraging followers of Jesus all over the world. Wherever they have lived, their home has been a primary place of ministry and encouragement. Their life passion is to align who they are and what they do with the eternal purpose of God—that all people in all places know and worship Him alone.
