Welcome From Coach Mark


Thanks so much for taking a few moments to drop by.  If you don’t already know, we’re a bit different at Second Chance Church.  And that starts with me.  I don’t call myself Pastor.  No offense to the many wonderful men that have worn that title well, but I believe it causes more confusion than clarity.  What do I mean by that?  Well let’s take a quick look at what most people think of when they think of the two titles:



  • Super Christian
  • Does it all
  • Knows it all
  • Not “one of us”



  • A Builder of Teams
  • Skilled at getting the best out of the players
  • Allows other coaches to do what they do best
  • A unifying presence

So, I encourage you to investigate our team.  This is a great place to start.  Poke around….read the stuff…ask a few questions.  Then, make a commitment to drop by a team meeting on any Sunday morning…say, around 10:00 am.  It’s where you really get a chance to see our true colors.  And who knows, you may find yourself on the team right along side us.
