Staff and Facilitators
Joe Wilson is the President of New Churches Now and serves as the leader and administrator for training and networking pastor together across the globe for the cause of Jesus Christ.
Mark Wankel is a Church Movement Leader with New Churches Now. He has spent the bulk of his career working two professions. First, he was a financial, tax, and production consultant and worked cooperatively with the University of Illinois and farmers. Then he worked for 23 years as an investment broker which included estate planning. After retirement, he prayed a simple prayer, “God, whatever time I have left, I want you to use me in such a way as folks will know that it is you working through me.” He began working closely with a group of church planters in an undisclosed Asian country. Then, Joe Wilson and Mark were introduced and have served together on projects in Asia, Albania, and the Philippines. He is helping New Churches Now to expand their ability to help more people find their way back to God.

He feels blessed to be part of the New Churches Now team helping to catalyze movements of reproducing churches in the former Soviet Union and around the world.
