Associate Pastor Mark Jones
Pastor Mark was born in Chicago and grew up in the Uptown community. He often speaks of men at UBC who invested in him and discipled him. He developed a heart for the community, the church, and now does the same by investing in and discipling others. While faithfully serving at Uptown, he felt the call to full time ministry. He earned his Master of Arts in Missiology from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.
He met his wife Mary Ellen at UBC. As of 2021 they have been married for 28 years and have two children Sarah and Matthew. They have served UBC for 21 years. Pastor Mark leads Christian Education and Growth Groups at UBC. When he is not fishing for men he enjoys fishing with the rod and reel.
