Marc, a native of Queens, graduated from Dartmouth College in 1998. After spending time abroad in Germany and working as a consultant in Boston, Marc ended up in Washington D.C. He spent 5 years there on staff with FOCUS, a para-church youth ministry for independent school students. Once he had his fill of paintballing, adolescent drama and summer camps, Marc heeded his growing desires to return home and to serve the churches of NYC. His first step towards that end was enrolling at Princeton Theological Seminary in 2007. Being close to New York City made Princeton a perfect vantage point to both study and take bites out of the Big Apple.
It was during his time at seminary that he first learned of Resurrection Brooklyn and its church planting internship. Marc graduated from seminary in May 2010, and shortly thereafter Marc and his wife, Balem, became residents of Park Slope. Marc joined the staff of Resurrection Park Slope as an intern in September 2010 and was ordained in June 2012.
Marc and Balem are happy to be laying down roots in Brooklyn. In addition to making trips to Queens and the Hudson Valley, they enjoy cooking, scoping out cheap eats, getting the New Yorker, and thinking about having all sorts of fun.
