For many years Mark and Naomi have served in ministry in both Texas and Oklahoma. They have been a part of virtually every area of local Church ministry, and love to see people experience the presence of God and discover who they truly are because of Him. In September 2012 Mark and Naomi relocated to Stillwater, Oklahoma. For many years Mark and Naomi had dreamed of starting a Church with a special passion for God’s presence. Then in May of 2015 they sensed God’s timing, and Encounter Church was born in their home. They have chosen intentionally to focus the ministry of Encounter Church on the Presence of God, and His interaction with His people in their everyday lives because they understand they are sons and daughters of God. Mark and Naomi have 6 kids (3 girls and 3 boys, but only 2 are still at home). They love people, and enjoy spending time with the Encounter Church family.
