Our Ministry Leaders

Vicar Mark Rekken

Hi, I’m Vicar Mark, a minister in training at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Originally I am from St. Albert Alberta, which means I’m an Oilers sympathizer. In 2016 I graduated from Concordia University of Edmonton with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Sociology. In the fall of that same year I began my studies at Concordia Lutheran Seminary in Edmonton. I am now in my third year (vicarage) of my seminary training with one more year to go (Lord willing).

On  July 1st 2017 I married my marvelously magnificent wife Beka and promised that we would always have fireworks on our anniversary, at least as long as we’re in Canada!

I enjoy many things, such as: one on one conversation, watching sports, playing sports, hiking, reading, and I love cooking (especially trying new recipes and foreign cuisines). If you ask me what my favourite book of the Bible is I will probably give you a different answer each time you ask.

I am very excited to be serving and learning at Prince of Peace this year, and I hope to see you there!
