Episode 239: Mark Jenkins
Mark Jenkins comes on the podcast at an opportune time, but we’ll come back to that. Mark, who grew up in the Richmond area, is a pastor at Berea Baptist Church in Rockville, Va. Mark spoke to Paul about having a huge family and being in two very different school systems growing up. They talked about him switching his major while attending Chowan College, discussed his various careers and how he was able to combine them over time and find a certain niche for one of them. Then Mark decided to pursue church work full time and that led him down a path that makes his timing of being on the podcast perfect. Mark has a great deal of knowledge about and has traveled to Israel many, many times. He and Paul spoke at length about Israel and specifically about the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7th, 2023. The podcast ended with Paul making an offer to Mark that he has never made before.
