Executive Director for The Washing
Mark Andresen and his wife, Silia, are new to Spokane, having moved here in 2016 from the San Francisco Bay Area. They have been married for 36 years and have four incredible children and two cute grandsons. They love to spend time with family, watch old movies, and talk with good friends over a cup of coffee.
Mark and Silia have been involved with Church leadership and ministries for over 36 years. Mark’s experience includes being an associate pastor, a worship leader, an assistant director of a missions ministry, and now the Executive Director of 10:31 Ministries. 1 Corinthians 10:31 states, “…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God”.
10:31 Ministries acts as the umbrella organization for Mark’s work with SpoFI and other ministries. Mark is also on the Board of Directors for The Way of Business which teaches business and church leadership how to conduct business God’s way. He is actively involved with the Spokane Prayer Initiative which seeks to provide 24/7 prayer support for Spokane. Mark is the Executive Director for The Washing which is a 90-hour prayer and bible reading marathon event.
Mark’s passions lie at the root of his involvement with SpoFI. Mark loves to pray and wants to see prayer restored in our church culture as our first resort, not last. “Communing with God is what it’s all about.”
When not engaged in ministry work, Mark continues his engineering work with EMM Consulting – a consulting firm he began in Spokane which specializes in the monitoring and management of electrical energy.
