Mark Hornbacher: Growing up nominally Catholic, Mark began reading and studying the Scriptures as a teenager. This journey into a more mature faith led him to theology studies, discernment of religious life, and diocesan seminary, before he recognized a lay calling in service to the Church’s mission of evangelization. As Vice President of Programs and Operations and Director of Theology at St. Paul Evangelization Institute, Mark helps develop and implement many of the institute’s initiatives, including new course materials and other publications. He also helps coordinate and supervise daily operations. He resides in Warren, Michigan, with his wife Gayle.
