Senior Pastor -- Mark Morris
Our Senior Pastor, Mark Morris, began his ministry at Antioch in August, 2005. Mark has been in the pastoral ministry since 1978. He has a BA degree in Sociology from Campbell University and a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Mark became a Christian at the age of 16 and immediately felt a strong desire to share the “good news of Jesus Christ” with others which evolved quickly into a call from God to enter the ministry.
Mark is a native of Rocky Mount, North Carolina. He has been married to his wife, Beechye, since 1976. They have three children, Stephen, Angie, and Matthew, and three grandchildren, Sophie, Luke, and Landon. Prior to having grandchildren, Mark’s favorite hobby was golf; now golf has taken second place to being Granddaddy/favorite playmate for Sophie, Luke, and Landon. Beechye has recently retired from teaching AIG English at West Alexander Middle School.
