Dr. Mark Lynch
Our Senior Pastor is Dr. Mark Lynch or Bro. Mark, as he likes to be called, has been serving as Temple Baptist Churches Senior Pastor since September 2017. He has a passion to see the lost come to Jesus and teaches the word of God in such a way all can learn & grow in their faith. He earned his Doctorate Degrees in Theology, Divinity and Ministry from Slidell Baptist Seminary. He served 6 other churches in the beautiful state of Tn. before coming to Temple. His favorite bible verses are Romans 5:6-10, "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life." His greatest desire is "meeting people as they are and helping them become the person God wants them to be."
