Mark Doll

Mark Doll

Minister of Faith Development

Mark has been serving at Covenant since 2004, when he was certified as a Youth Minister by the Youth and Family Institute at Wartburg Seminary. His primary areas of focus are Youth and Family ministry as well as Christian Education, but he is also engaged in the area of worship as one of the music leaders for Covenant’s Saturday evening service. Mark is currently working on a Master’s Degree in Diaconal Ministry through the Distributed Learning track at Wartburg Seminary. See Chris’ biography for Mark’s family news (they are similar!). In his free time, Mark enjoys building faith chests, and basically any home improvement projects – except painting. Mark also walks 15,000 steps per day, so you may not find him at his desk very often.
