Staff and Leadership
The Rev. Mark Lauer is the Senior Pastor (Rector) at Christ the King Anglican Church. Mark married his wife, Shawnie, in 1990. Their son, Morgan, was born in 2005. Mark is an extroverted people-person and a bit of a dreamer-visionary. He loves solitude too, enjoying quiet time for reflection and study. Mark is also a licensed pilot, plays the guitar, was a roadie for a band, and has far more songs on his iPhone than games. He worked in the technology market of Silicon Valley for 14 years and ran his own international sales consulting business for 6 of those years.
He co-founded a coaching center for life coaching, relationship coaching, and sales coaching (www.centerforrelationship.com). Mark also enjoys working as a pastor-at-large in the local community and enjoys officiating over various ceremonies for those who have no church home (www.pastormarklauer.com). Mark has earned degrees in psychology at Oregon State University and theology at Fuller Seminary. He has done post-graduate work at Santa Clara University. Mark has served as an associate pastor at Calvary Church of Los Gatos, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, South Hills Community Church (San Jose), and on the church planting team of Cornerstone Community Church (San Jose). You can email Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our board of directors (Vestry) is comprised of Mark Lauer (President), Nicky Huls (Senior Warden), Carl Steeves (Secretary), and Brian Miller (Junior Warden). Cindy Miller serves as Treasurer.
