St. Mark Staff
Meet the members of St. Mark Presbyterian’s leadership and staff dedicated to serving our congregation.
Our Pastor: D. Mark Davis
Pastor and Head of Staff
Mark Davis was raised in Hampton, VA, attending and being educated for ministry in the Pentecostal Holiness Church. After college he attended Union Presbyterian Seminary in VA, and shortly after began the journey of becoming a Presbyterian pastor. He moved to Iowa in 1989 to pursue a Ph.D. in Theology, Ethics, and Culture at the University of Iowa, embarking on what turned out to be a 25-year stay in the state. In 1996, Mark began serving for 18 years as the pastor of a New Church Development near Des Moines, during which the church grew from 90 to over 400 members. Also during that time, Mark was on the Board of Directors for The Interfaith Alliance of Iowa, serving several terms as President of the Board.
