Mark Worrell, U.S. Army Chaplain, ACBC Biblical Counselor

Mark Worrell joined the Fallen Soldiers March Advisory Board as he saw the desire FSM had to build bridges to connect struggling Service members, veterans, and retirees with the life changing message of the Gospel. Deployments, training, and the ever present challenge of military life take a toll on our lives, our families, and can on our walk with Christ. FSM is working to bring the Truth of the Gospel to bear in every day life.

Mark is originally from Los Gatos, California but claims Lafayette, Indiana as home, as his family spent some time at Faith Church, preparing for Chaplaincy. He came to know Christ personally in his senior year of High School and, after pursuing military service through ROTC, realized that God was calling him to ministry. He married his wife the year he would have commissioned. Five years later, Mark and Shelly went to Clarks Summit, PA as Mark attended Baptist Bible Seminary. The Worrells returned to California, where Mark pastored in Modesto and Lakeport. It was there that Mark realized (and Shelly and others confirmed) his calling toward chaplaincy, to combine his passion to reach Service members with vocational ministry.

Mark was endorsed by the Regular Baptist Chaplaincy Ministries in 2007 and direct commissioned to the Army in 2008. Mark has served as Squadron Chaplain in the 2-13 Cavalry Squadron at Fort Bliss, Tx, deploying in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 09-10, as Battalion Chaplain in 1-3 Infantry Regiment, “The Old Guard” at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall,” as Battalion Chaplain in the 91st Civil Affairs Battalion at Fort Bragg, NC, and again at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall as Deputy Joint Base Chaplain and Chaplaincy Resource Manager. He currently serves as the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade Chaplain at Wheeler Army Airfield, HI. The Worrells have been blessed to serve in chapel communities at each duty station.

Mark has completed the Chaplain Captains’ Career Course, the Basic Airborne Course, and others that have helped him and his family connect with the Soldiers they get to serve alongside. In the process, he was blessed to be discipled through the ACBC certification process, completing that in 2013. Mark is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Educational Ministry in Biblical Counseling through the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, focusing on the biblical basis for the concept of self-care and its connection to Sabbath. He has a blog at http://www.marksmusings.net/ and has written a published article, entitled, “Preparing Well for Military Service” through the Biblical Counseling Coalition.

Mark and Shelly have been married since 1997 and have a daughter they were blessed to adopt in 2012. Infertility, adoption, and special needs are all part of the story God has written into their lives.
