OUR ASSISTANT PASTOR
Mark Husband began serving as pastoral assistant at Christ the King Church in August 2020 and was installed as our Assistant Pastor in January, 2022. Mark attended Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi, where he majored in Biblical Studies, played baseball, and met his wife, Rachel. Mark and Rachel have three children, Lolyla, Levi and Judah.
Mark received pastoral training at Reformed Theological Seminary and previously served as a youth director at Christ Church PCA in Katy, Texas for two years, and for three years as a senior pastor at Delta Fellowship Church in Helena, Arkansas. He is currently a master’s student in Bible Translation at Dallas International University.
Mark enjoys reading God’s words in the Hebrew and Greek of the Bible, and sharing the Good News in the English of today. He loves the smell of the ancient pages of a rare book room, the fresh cut grass of a baseball field, and the juicy slices of a perfectly smoked brisket. Mark’s desire is to savor and serve God’s words.
As a congregation in the Presbyterian Church in America, our beliefs are most fully articulated in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms. You can find a link to them here.
In the meantime, though, here are a few bullet points about what we believe:
WE BELIEVE the Bible.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to the world. It tells us all that we need for salvation and godly living. The Bible is primarily a story about God sending his beloved Son, Jesus, to rescue his people from sin and death.
WE BELIEVE that God is big and we are small.
We believe that God created everything out of nothing by merely speaking, and he governs all that he has made. God is sovereign over everything, including our salvation. There is nothing outside of his control.
WE BELIEVE that God acts the same towards his people in the Old and New Testaments.
We believe that God has always related to his people in terms of a covenant, where God’s people are represented by a mediator. This covenant community has always included believers and their children. The Bible is a single story of God choosing, redeeming, blessing, and sending his people to be a blessing in the world.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the gospel (the chief need of believers/unbelievers alike)
We believe that all of salvation comes to us “in Christ.” What is true of him becomes true of us in the gospel. God reckons us as righteous, adopts us as children, and delights over us for eternity. Both believers and unbelievers need the same thing: Jesus.
