rev. mark webb

Senior Pastor & CCS Board Member

Mark accepted the call of God to lead our church in October, 2016.

Mark has served several churches in Kentucky including churches in Louisville, Owenton, Worthville, and Highland Heights. Also Mark was involved in planting two churches in Ohio.

He was married to Kristy in 1995, and God has blessed them with two children: Landon, and Zoe.  The Webb's seek to allow ministry to naturally flow out of their lives. Serving God is not just something they do, it makes them who they are.

Mark and Kristy both grew up in Louisville, but they had never met until a friend introduced them as they were completing their degrees. Mark attended Samford University and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Kristy is a graduate of University of Louisville. Kristy works as the City Clerk for Taylor Mill.

Mark's hobbies include fishing, golf, basketball, as well as playing guitar. He also enjoys "Do It Yourself" projects around the house.
