Mark has said there is little difference between Youth and Experienced Adults. With Youth there are middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college students. With Experienced Adults you have the go-goers, the slow-goers and the can't-goers. His goal is to develop a full-blown Experienced Adults Ministry that includes Bible Study, Discipleship, Missions, and Recreation; a ministry to the whole person.
