In this episode, Jeremy interviews Mark Clark. Mark is the founding and lead pastor of Village Church in Vancouver. Jeremy and Mark discuss church growth, the state of the church in Canada, and practical tips on systems for seeing a church move to another level.
  1. For those not familiar with Mark Clark, what is your background?
  2. You are originally from Toronto, and you planted Village Church in Vancouver in 2010. What is the state of the church in Canada?
  3. You’ve seen major growth in Village Church. What are some keys to the way the church has grown?
  4. Tell me about the systems you have in place to keep Village running smoothly. I’d love to learn how you guys see someone transition from first-time guest to fully implemented into the fellowship.



Keeping your volunteer team up-to-speed and developing new leaders is hard. The way you’ve been doing it, empty meetings and unread emails, isn’t working.

You need something that lets you engage new volunteers while their interest is hot. Something to help you develop leaders as they grow, in real time. Something your people will appreciate because it saves them time. Heck, something that saves you time, too.

It’s time for TrainedUp.

One of the tools I am most excited about is Sermonary. It’s a revolutionary sermon building platform for pastors. Pastors have used everything from Evernote, Google Docs to Word but there has never been a dedicated sermon building platform, until now. Using their drag and drop builder, writing sermons has never been easier. You can add your name to the waiting list by going to sermonary.co.
