MEET MARK & SHERI
We are both proud graduates of Hyles-Anderson College where we met in June of 1992. We have been married for over 23 years and have pursued and worked in missions for all of those years.
Mark was saved in 1982 as an 11 year old boy in West Virginia. He was called to preach at our home church Teays Valley Baptist Church under the direction of Pastor Dr. John Smith. Mark has preached in many foreign countries and held Bible studies in some of the most remote places in South America. Reaching people who no one else cares about has been Mark’s passion in the ministry. He has spent countless hours developing Bible studies in Portuguese for use in a six week program as he introduces the Saviour to those who do not know Him.
Sheri was saved in 1984 as a 14 year old in Ocala Florida. She was called to the mission field in 1986 during a missions conference at Central Baptist Church under the direction of Dr. Andy Bloom. Sheri has been involved with short term and long term mission projects over the years. She has run large Bible Clubs and Ladies Ministries in every church we have started. She and Mark spend many evenings in people’s homes sharing God’s Word through Bible studies. She is also public speaker and avid writer. In 2017 she and her mother, Sharon Loyd, published a book, Let’s Get to Know Him that takes the reader on a journey to getting to know God better.
