Mark Lutz prepared for ministry at Cincinnati Christian University and studied counseling at Xavier University. First working for a Christian counseling center in Cincinnati, Mark learned how to integrate faith into clinical helping. His last 20 years have been spent refining the use of therapeutic knowledge and practices as applied to spiritual development. In his role as pastor of growth and healing at Vineyard Cincinnati, Mark oversees the recruitment, equipping and supervision of a volunteer staff that provides around 60-70 support/recovery groups yearly, and countless hours of pastoral care to individuals.
As an introvert in an extroverted vocation, Mark, in his down time, can be found riding his motorcycle on the country backroads around his home.
