Mark J. Smith,
Inspired by God, Mark answered the call of God to the pastorate and to pioneer a church in the North Omaha area. His heart is to see people's lives changed through the power of Jesus Christ. He has learned how to apply the prayer of agreement and has seen many people receive miraculous answers from God. He is a genuine teacher of the Word of God and loves to teach others in and out of the pulpit. He knows how to simplify God's Word without watering it down or losing its true meaning. He has a hunger for the supernatural things of God and enjoys spending lots of time studying the Bible. A couple of his famous quotes are "Simple obedience will always remedy any circumstance" and "Obedience will touch the heart of God like nothing else."
He received his ministerial training through Global University and is an ordained minister of the Assemblies of God. He is loyal to God, his family and the congregation he serves. He is a pastor with a pastor's heart.
Mark enjoys reading, singing, fishing, traveling and spending time with his wife.
