Minister to Experienced Adults
Mark Seanor - Minister to Experienced Adults
Mark was born in Dallas, Texas, and raised as a "Preacher's Kid" in Texas and Tennessee. He graduated from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, and holds a Master of Religious Education Degree from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas.
Mark has been Minister to Students at First Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, since 1992, and in September of 2001, became the Experienced Adult Minister. Involved in Student Ministry for almost 30 years, he served as Minister to Students at First Baptist Church in Roswell, Georgia; FBC in West Monroe, Louisiana; and FBC in McComb, Mississippi. Now as a grandparent he is loving this new role in life.
Mark has said there is little difference between Youth and Adults 55Plus. With Youth there are middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college students. With Adults 55Plus you have the go-goers, the slow-goers and the can't-goers.
His goal is to develop a full-blown Adults 55Plus Ministry that includes Bible Study, Discipleship, Missions, and Recreation; a ministry to the whole person, a ministry that's Bible-based, person-centered, and life-focused.
Mark and his wife, Angela Barton Seanor, who also grew up in Chattanooga, met on a trip to the Holy Land. They have two adult daughters, Natalie and Aimee, who are married with children. Mark's other interests include, hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing, and working on his car, a 1936 Terraplane, and spending time with his family.
