Prior to being appointed to his full-time role with TMAI, Dr. Tatlock served as Executive Vice President and Provost of The Master’s University. Mark brings 17 years of executive administrative experience to TMAI, and has been active in theological training for cross-cultural ministry within urban and international contexts. He is eager to invest in strengthening TMAI’s development and academic divisions. As a graduate of The Master’s Seminary, he is committed to TMAI’s theological distinctives and the priority of pastoral training.
Mark and his wife Lisa have five children: Jacob, Josiah, Hope, Paul, and Olivia. Care for orphans and foster children is an area of personal concern for them both, believing that God would have His people model the amazing picture of the Gospel and of His love that is found in adoption.
It is essential for today’s church leaders to recover a biblical (rather than cultural) definition of hospitality in order to fulfill God’s purpose for the church. Scripture presents hospitality as a vital ministry for both men and women to practice in order to advance the gospel and model God’s welcoming heart.
