 Pastor Mark Smith was appointed to serve the churches of Ganado and Louise in June, 2015.  Mark comes to us from a family deeply rooted in Texas ranching and the Methodist Religion.  His Great, great Grandfather was a Circuit Riding Methodist Minister who immigrated from Germany in the late 1840’s, arriving at Indianola by ship.  After a short stay in Victoria, Mark’s relative settled near Fredericksburg and established ranches and churches throughout the Texas Hill Country.  As a result, Mark spent his summers working on the family ranches and listening to stories about early Texas and early Methodism.  After spending his school age years in Austin Mark worked in construction and sales until he received his call from God in 2006.  Mark has served Methodist and Disciples of Christ Churches in the Texas Hill Country and West Texas.  Mark has a passion for Christ, and a compassion for his flocks.  Mark is married to Angel, and together they have 4 children.
