Also participating in the ceremony were Dr. Arthur Bowser of Factoryville, who led in the opening prayer. Pastor Ted Lawrence, pastor of West Smyrna Baptist Church, led in the Scripture reading and Dr. Ben McGrew of Clarks Summit who with his daughter, Beth McGrew, also of Clarks Summit, sang, "O Rejoice in the Lord".
Other members and friends of Heritage Baptist and Thompson Baptist were there to help make the licensing ceremony a memorable time for Mark and his family.

He and his wife, Jenny spent two years in Togo, West Africa with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism. Since that time they have pursued medical careers until Thompson Baptist Church called him to serve as their interim pastor
