Mark Rice

Mark is the head of building and grounds. He grew up in a very Godly home in upstate New York. His dad was a very Godly man who never gave up on him and prayed fervently for his salvation.Those prayers were answered in July 2000 when Mark placed his faith in Christ as Savior, just a few months before his dad passed away. Mark then spent a year in Bellwood, PA at a youth center for at risk teens where he quickly realized he wanted and needed more training. He came to Iowa to attend Faith Baptist Bible College where he met his wife Joanna. They have been attending Saylorville Church since 2002. They now have 3 children: Jamee, Kahlan and Juddsen. When he isn’t cleaning, fixing or maintaining, Mark enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing and shooting.
