Mark Messare has been working with Freedom Bible College & Seminary since 2004 and has been a part of many exciting adventures in ministry.  He traveled to Lagos Nigeria to meet FBCS affiliate and speak at several churches during his time there.  He also later brought Bishop Dr. Israel Ikpeka to graduation services the following year.

We at Freedom Bible Institute of Salem, Oregon truly believe in the motto “Educating the World to Save the World”  which was founded by Dr. Joel P. Church and his wife Dr. Vicki Church.

Mark completed his Bachelor’s through FBCS and also his Master’s course work while on deployment with the military in the Middle East.  He is currently in the process of writing his doctoral dissertation which will be released in 2018.  Mark also holds a Bachelors in Science from Nyack College in Organizational Management.  He was ordained by Dr. Church in 2007 and has officiated weddings as well as spoken as a guest speaker for Return of the King Healing Conference in April 2017.

2017 is the year we are finally open to accepting students to Freedom Bible Institute New York and are looking forward to what the Lord is planning to do!
