Mark Tan serves as Pastor for Youth and College Students at First Baptist Church. Prior to that, he graduated with a Bachelor of Theology (Malaysian Baptist Theological Seminary). Mark was also pursuing a Masters in Pastoral Theology with MBTS which he is hoping to complete soon.
Mark has a deep interest in Christian Apologetics which can be seen in how he disciples his Youth and College Students. Even every Ministry Intern of FBC had to undergo some hours of training in Evangelism and Apologetics with him. Mark also regularly speaks in schools, colleges, churches and cell group gatherings across denominations, usually providing an apologetic flavour to his messages and discussions.
Mark is happily married to his lovely wife, Mae, who he met in Seminary in 2008. Together they face their greatest, personal Explain project of their lives so far: explaining the Gospel to their little daughter, Noelle, who was born in 2015.
