In light of our "Being Seen" series, we will be posting portraits and interviews of congregation members every week, starting with everyone's best friend, Pastor Mark Nsimbi!

"I went to the concert with my friends who had graduated. After the artist performed, the pastor came and preached. They invited the graduates to come forward and respond to an alter call and ask, 'God what do you want to do with my life now that I’ve graduated?'

I was still a junior in high school, but I thought 'You know what I’m going to respond to that alter call too and just go ahead and ask God what he wants to do with my life.' I just said “Hey God I’m here and I’m not leaving until you tell me what you want me to do with my life.' After a few minutes of prayer I literally heard a voice saying the word 'a pastor.' I thought someone had said something but there was no one around. That’s really the moment when I look back and I know that’s when I received the calling. Since then God has been affirming and confirming that call in so many ways."
