At the age of 19, Mark Coffey spent 5 months in Peru where the Lord opened his eyes to the mission field. He was called to missions the very next year and has since then worked closely with Pastor Austin Gardner. Mark is also married to Amy and now has five children- Tyler, Chase, Emilee, Luke and Addison.
Mark has worked in various areas of ministry as an assistant youth director, a children’s pastor, an assistant pastor, a missionary to Peru as well as the director of Vision Baptist Missions.
Mark also traveled full time as a missionary representative for the work in Arequipa, Peru, South America, which has been key to starting churches and training leaders in South America and around the world. In addition to his traveling on behalf of the work in Peru, he has also recruited individuals with an interest in the mission field for short-term missions trips through the Our Generation Training Center.
Just recently the Lord began to work in Mark’s heart and he is now going to South Africa as a church planting missionary. He is being sent out of Vision Baptist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia through Vision Baptist Missions. He plans to start working with the Xhosa people in Port Elizabeth in January of 2013.
