Pastor Tetley

Pastor Mark Tetley is our pastor of English Ministries.  He has been a part of New Life Church since 2023.

Pastor Mark grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and continues to cheer on the Cardinals and the Blues.  He received two undergraduate degrees from Ouachita Baptist University in Pastoral Ministries and Education.  During this time, he met Peggy, the second love of his life after Jesus, and they were married during his final year.  After college, he studied at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis, Tennessee, where he received a Master of Divinity degree.

Peggy and Mark came to New Life from South Florida, where they spent most of their ministry years, where  Mark pastored in three churches.  He has been heavily involved with church planting as a church planter and mentor.  In addition, he served with the International Mission Board in France as a Strategy Team Leader to see disciples made and churches started among various people groups in Paris.

Pastor Mark is passionate about seeing people transformed through a relationship with Jesus Christ who will invest themselves in others who do the same, making disciples of all peoples and starting new churches.  Whether talking to one person or teaching on Sunday morning, he shows people how the Bible connects to their lives in a clear and relevant manner.
