Marko and Lisa have been married for 21 years and have 4 great kids; Sam (11), Ava (7), Rachel (6), and Lila (4). Before starting their family, they both volunteered with Youth for Christ for 3 years. Following that, Lisa was on staff full-time for 4 years as the Middle School Director. More recently, Marko has served on the Wednesday night Kid’s Ministry team at FOB for the past 2 years, and Lisa has served as our Nursery Director.
Their vision for the Kid’s Ministry comes out of 1 Timothy 4:12: “Let no one look down on you because of your youth, but be an example and set a pattern for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” By leading them into an authentic experience with God, they want to raise kids up who take ownership of their faith and learn to walk by the Spirit in every area of their lives. They believe in equipping them with foundational teaching of the Bible, providing interactive times of prayer and worship, and fostering relationships in small group settings. Above all, Marko and Lisa want the kids at FOB to fall in love with Jesus and develop a sincere and lasting relationship with Him!
