SENIOR pastor

Pastor Mark Hiehle became our Senior Pastor on March 19, 2016. Pastor Mark comes to Castleton with a servant’s heart for the Lord and His people, and is excited for the journey that the Lord has ahead. Pastor Mark is an ordained Elder in the Church of the Nazarene having served in ministry in various capacities. He has served as a Senior Pastor, Youth Pastor and also as an Executive Director of Crisis Pregnancy Centers around the country as God has given him a heart for the unborn and standing for LIFE. Pastor Mark is married to his best friend and love of his life, Anita. God blessed them with 3 biological children: Jonathan, Timothy and Jennifer. Then, God broke Anita’s heart for orphans and adoption which led to the adoption of their children, Kaylin and Kaleb, from China. Mark and Anita also have two beautiful granddaughters.  Mark enjoys canoeing, swimming, beach vacations and spending time with his family. His greatest desire is to see peoples’ lives saved and changed through the work and power of God!
