Pastor Mark McCready came to Alma Bible Church in August of 2010. Prior to coming to Alma he had served in some form of rural Pastoral ministry for close to 10 years. He began by doing some itinerant work while living in Colorado. Then, on completing his M.Div., he moved to Bancroft, Ontario where he served as full time Pastor of Bancroft Bible Chapel (2004-2010).
Mark originally trained in the area of Finance and Economics completing a Bachelor of Business Administration with an Economics Option at Wilfrid Laurier University (1994). Following his undergraduate work, he moved to Toronto and worked for W.F. Morneau and Associates (1994-2000) now known as Morneau Shepell.
While working in Toronto, he sensed God calling him to Pastoral ministry, and so he and his wife relocated to Denver Colorado where he completed his Masters of Divinity at Denver Seminary (2004).
Mark was born and raised in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. He is happily married to his wife of 17 years, and together they have two beautiful girls.
