Rev. Mark Roeda (he/him) has been serving Zion since early in 2024. He finds himself regularly awed by the power of the gospel story and ticked off by the ways it has been used to exploit and oppress the vulnerable. He owns a Fender Telecaster. The distortion he can create with that thing sparks joy. He still plays basketball on a weekly basis and serves as an inspiration to others who were cut (TWICE!) from their high school team: life goes on! He's so grateful to be married to Jenn Jones. Together they have three kids: Alison, Arden, and Michael. For that, he is also so grateful.
