Pastor Mark McIntyre
I am originally from Indiana. I have also lived in Illinois, Colorado, Wyoming and several cities in Florida before moving to Safety Harbor for the last 23 years and I have been a member of St. Paul’s for 28 years. I spent the last 19 years working as an office manager for a court reporting company. Prior to that I worked as a legal secretary for an attorney in St. Petersburg until she closed her practice. I have a son, Brendon, who is an architect in New York City and a daughter, Lara, who is married to Jim and they have a son. They live in Frisco, Texas. My hobbies are reading and cross stitching. I am very happy to now be working in the church office with such a wonderful, caring staff.
