Pastor Mark Yocom came to know Christ in 1974 when he was 10 years old through his relatives.
But, in his teen years he strayed away from the Lord and became a prodigal.
In 1984, when he was 21 years old, Mark rededicated his life to Christ and serving Him. At that time became a member of Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California. Mark soon became involved in serving in different ministries including missions.
In 1986-87 Mark spent a year in Mexico.
In 1996 the Lord called Mark to the mission field in Europe. He spent over 2 years on staff at the Calvary Chapel Bible College in Austria until the Lord called him to reach the Albanian people in Albania where he spent a year.
And then he arrived in Kosovo after the war in 1999 and founded a Calvary Chapel church in the capital city Prishtina.
Mark married his wife Celeste in 2004 and God has blessed them with their beautiful daughter Isabella.
