Mark Musser graduated from the Evergreen State College in 1989 in Olympia, Washington with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts and then from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon in 1994 with a Master of Divinity. He and his wife, Caren, together with their children, Rachel, Alex and Paul, were a missionary family in the former Soviet Union for 7 years where they helped plant two churches working with Village Ministries International and James F. Myers Ministries. While on the mission field, Mark taught in numerous seminaries, bible colleges, bible institutes, and other churches. Since coming home from the mission field in 2004 they planted a new church on the west side of Olympia called Grace Redeemer Bible Church, but continues to teach Bible courses and workshops on mission trips. Mark is also an author, and is currently an adjunct professor at Chafer Theological Seminary. He is a contributing writer for the Cornwall Alliance, which is a coalition of clergy, theologians, religious leaders, scientists, academics, and policy experts committed to bringing a balanced biblical view of stewardship to the critical issues of environment and development. Mark lives on a small farm in the Black Hills near Olympia, Washington.
Mark also has a personal website at www.rmarkmusser.com that showcases Mark’s books, writings, and articles on many subjects – all subjected to a bible framework with regard to those things which occur “under the sun.”
