Mark Woof | Valley Simsbury Pastor

Mark has been active in full-time ministry for 17 years, serving the first 14 in student ministry. He believes church is people more than place — a spiritual family more than a weekend event. He’s married to Janet and they have four awesome kids – Hailey, Hannah, Hunter, and Harper.

Mark loves to gather together and grow with other dads, coach high school football (go Trojans!), ski and tube with his kids, and serve our community with his wife. His most crazy memories are driving in demolition derby and getting 200 stitches after smashing through a glass door.

When all is said and done, he hopes he’ll be remembered as a down-to-earth guy — someone who followed hard after Jesus, led many to become disciples, and attained status as a superstar husband and all-star dad.
