Mark is a “missionary kid” having lived the early part of his life in a small Tlinket town in Alaska where his parents were planting a church. This hid deep in his heart a sense of the importance of cross-cultural ministry. During his adult years serving as a pastor, he was deeply involved in mission outreach in Mexico with a long ignored people group deep in the mountains in Southern Mexico. Mark’s involvement with ministry in West Africa began to his great surprise and joy in 2000. Beginning in 2002 he launched a national network of churches and businesses in North America who shared a commitment to reaching the Islamic people of Senegal/Gambia with the good news of Jesus’ love. In 2008, working with a group of church and business leaders Mark helped launch what has become GO on the Mission.

Hannah spent 15 years as a professional youth worker before joining the team at GO. Through her years of serving in various churches she gained a deepening sense of call toward mission. As a seminary student, she spent time discerning where God was calling her next, assuming she would serve as an associate pastor in a church somewhere, helping to shape the outreach ministry. From the first time Hannah went to Mazatlán with GO, however, she began to yearn for the opportunity to work with the organization, serving those in need. She never dreamed that God would call her to serve in an organization rather than a traditional church, but she could not be happier that He did. She is passionate about the work we do at GO on the Mission, helping people connect with children in need throughout the world.

Megan grew up in the sweet tranquility of small town life in Centralia, Washington. Her family attended church each Sunday, where Megan fell in love with the Lord. She attended the University of Washington, following her passion for science and the pursuit of laboratory research in oncology and auto-immune disorders. Over numerous visits with her husband Pedro’s extended family in Argentina, Megan discovered her love for Latin American cultures. After 10 years of working in a lab, doing the research she loved, Megan felt the Lord calling her into a new adventure, working in a new field. Having been a long time supporter of GO on the Mission, and a passionate advocate for seeing children break the cycle of poverty into which they were born, she jumped at the chance to work for GO.
