Mark Carlson

Executive & Operations Pastor

I have been on the staff of Church on the Ridge since 2010. I’ve been married for 29 fun-filled years to a spectacular woman, and we have two daughters who make us extremely proud. I’m a Seahawk die-hard and a Husky homer! But I have no recollection of a team called the “Mariners.”

My Father led me to Christ at age nine. Even though I was raised in a pastor’s home, he wanted me to have a definitive moment in my life where I could look back and say, “That’s when I accepted Jesus,” something for which I am so grateful looking back.

I love the outdoors and being with my family. The thing that really gets me fired up is when I see people grow, achieve, and rise to new levels of excellence in life, spiritual maturity and leadership. I also hold a Master’s of Music in Vocal Performance, which allows me to yodel to the staff when encouragement and direction are needed.
