|Mark Crews, Lead Pastor|
A graduate of North Greenville College and Columbia International University, Mark has led two highly successful ministry teams in music, children, students, and education. Mark was called to York County in 1995 to serve as an associate pastor of a local church. In 1999, Mark sensed God’s call to plant a church in York County. After much prayer, Mark completed demographic studies and presented his finding to local churches and para-church organizations seeking support to plant Lifeway. In January of 2000, Lifeway Church opened its doors and began to see immediate growth. Mark is married to Robyn Williams of Columbia, South Carolina. They have two children, Hannah, who is married to Zach Plaxco, and Clay. In his free time, Mark enjoys reading and the outdoors.
