Leading at ABCS

Over the years ABCS has been blessed with outstanding volunteer leaders. We highly value our dedicated volunteers and aim to discern their gifts and calling to help them grow with us into leadership roles. One longtime leader is Dr. Mark Mucklow who has faithfully served on our board for nearly 20 years, including as chairman in 2021 and 2022. Mark is the senior pastor at First Southern Baptist Church Sahuaro Ranch in Glendale. One of his great joys in pastoring there for 30 years is being able to watch the Lord move across generations. Mark and his wife Tricia have four grown children.

Mark is a vocal and active member of the ABCS board who has led or served on multiple committees. Reflecting on the ministry, he said, “ABCS has grown and adapted as needed to reach the most people for the Lord while at the same time serving the real needs of people in our communities all over Arizona. I am repeatedly reminded of the amazing people who choose to serve the Lord through this Christ-centered organization. I count it a real honor and blessing to try to stand with them as the Lord leads us to change lives for the better. Through very difficult times as an organization… God has remained faithful and lives continue to be changed through all seven of our various ministries. What a blessing to share!”
