    The Rev. Dr. Mark McDonough

    Session is very pleased to announce the hiring of Rev. Mark McDonough, as our bridge pastor.  Pastor Mark was highly recommended and comes to us with nearly 40 years of experience in parish ministry. He earned both a Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. He has served congregations in Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin varying in membership from less than 100 to 1,500, and in small town, suburban, and urban settings. Pastor Mark has served several committees in the Presbytery of Milwaukee, including a term as Moderator of the Presbytery Council. For the past 18 years, he has served a small and young congregation at Calvary Church in Milwaukee. He has also served part-time as the Chaplain at Eastcastle Place Senior Living in Milwaukee.

    Some of you may remember Pastor Mark from the time he was pastor of Covenant Church here in Racine. Pastor Mark and his wife Maggie live in Racine. Maggie is the Co-Director of College Counseling at The Prairie School. Mark and Maggie look forward to getting to know the members of First Pres and helping us to prepare to call our next installed pastor. Please join our Session and Transition Team in welcoming Pastor Mark and Maggie to our church family!
