St. Mark’s welcomes Jim Branch to lead our Lenten Retreat on February 24 at Calvary Church in Batavia. Jim and his wife Carol are from Knoxville, Tennessee, where he works for a local foundation doing community care and leadership development. Before that, he served for eighteen years on the Young Life staff, as well as being on the staff at Cedar Spring Presbyterian Church in Knoxville for ten years as the Director of Student Ministries. Jim and Carol have three grown children (Tim, Michelle, and Hunter) and one brand new daughter-in-law (Katie).
Jim is the author of The Blue Book: A Devotional Guide for Every Season of Your Life, the basis of the retreat study.
