Mark and Nicola’s role is to support fellow SEND North personnel in Alaska’s interior. They serve in the Fairbanks area and wear many hats. They are part of the Logistics and Support team, providing housing and expediting, as well as being part of the aviation department through flight and maintenance.

Fairbanks is the most northern city on Alaska’s road system, making it the most central location for supporting the villages in the interior. Fairbanks is considered, by many, to be Alaska’s largest “village” as it is well connected with the outlying villages.  

Mark is a graduate of LeTourneau University with a Bachelor of Science in Flight Science, holding his commercial, multi-engine pilot certificate, and airframe and powerplant mechanic’s certificate. Nicola graduated from Olivet Nazarene University with a degree in nursing, served one term with the Air Force, and now raises their three kids while assisting in ministry. Mark and Nicola have been serving with SEND North since 2015.
