Mark Baker is grateful that he has been mentored and discipled by professors and people he worked with in ministry, and grateful that he now has the opportunity to mentor students at Mennonite Brethren Biblical Theological Seminary where he began teaching in 1999. Many summers spent as a counselor at a Christian camp made a significant contribution to his leadership development. After graduating from Wheaton College in 1979 he taught four years at a bi-lingual high school in Tegucigalpa Honduras where he coordinated a youth ministry program. He then served as a campus minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for three years in Syracuse N.Y. In 1989 he and his wife Lynn went to Honduras as missionaries. They worked with the Honduran equivalent of InterVarsity and co-operated with various Christian community development projects. Mark also taught part-time at a Bible institute. Mark and Lynn had been attracted to Anabaptism through reading, life experience and interaction with various Anabaptist believers. In 1992 when they moved to Durham N.C., for Mark to study theology at Duke University, they joined a Mennonite Church. In 1996 they returned to Honduras. Among other activities Mark taught at the Latin American Anabaptist Seminary. For a number of years Mark has been deeply involved with a church in a poor neighborhood in Tegucigalpa, walking with them as they seek to follow Jesus. He learned a great deal in the process, and received as he gave. His first book is a product of his conversations with these people. He remains actively involved with this church and other mission activities in Honduras through annual visits. Mark and his wife Lynn have two daughters, Julia and Christie.
