St. Mark's Pastors

Rev. Stephen F. Yelovich - 1982Rev. Stephen F. Yelovich - 2005With the retirement of Pastor Hasskarl, the council and congregation decided to implement a team ministry with Dale E. Johnson and a new pastor to be called. The Rev. Stephen F. Yelovich was called in 1982 to be the second pastor and for a year the struggle to make this concept work was carried on.  Pastor Johnson moved to St. Andrew Evangelical Lutheran Church, Muncy, in 1983.  Pastor Yelovich left St. Mark's in 1984.
