Meet Our Pastor

Pastor Mark Edwards

Mark, Anni, and Joey are excited to be a part of the Grandview Alliance
family!The oldest of four “army brat” children, Mark was blessed to move around
a lot as a child. Upon graduating from an American high school in
Stuttgart, Germany,  Mark studied electrical and electronic engineering
at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. Shortly after
graduation, he followed the call which God had first placed upon him as
a university student involved in Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship and
a local Alliance church to continue his studies at Alliance Seminary
with a view to following Christ overseas. After graduation, Mark served
in Queens, NY and Raleigh, NC prior to serving as an international
worker in Taiwan for 15 years working amongst unreached “hidden in plain
sight” and then as an English teacher for an additional 8 years. Mark
enjoys reading, learning different languages, and several kinds of
exercise.Anni enjoyed making and selling different kinds of desserts at her
family’s popular “roasted chicken” restaurant back in southern Taiwan
(in an area famous for its hot springs), and continues to enjoy making
them here! Anni’s university background is in childhood education, and
she loves working with children. She also enjoys reading and worshiping
and praying to the Lord.

Mark and Anni’s son Joey was born on Hallowed Eve/Reformation Day in
2017. Joey loves playing in the waters of Lake Erie, sledding,
basketball, and riding his bicycle and scooter.
