Rev. Mark Jeske, a Milwaukee native, has served as the senior pastor at St. Marcus Lutheran Church on Milwaukee’s near north side since 1980. During those earlier years of his long tenure there, he made a personal commitment not to abandon the inner city when racial tensions caused urban flight to accelerate. Prior to serving as the pastor at St. Marcus, Pastor Jeske spent a year in Colombia, South America, starting a mission church as part of his internship assignment while attending Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wis., for his theological post graduate education. He also spent two years teaching English, history, Old Testament, and geography at Northwestern Preparatory School in Watertown, Wis.Pastor Jeske has been bringing the Word of God to viewers of Time of Grace since the program began airing in November of 2001. In addition, Pastor Jeske has written a Bible commentary (James, Peter, John, Jude) and more than two dozen daily devotional booklets. Pastor Jeske and his wife, Carol, an elementary school teacher, are blessed with four children; John, Sam, Liz, and Michael. They live on the east side of Milwaukee.

G - Inner city ministry - Rev. Mark Jeske
Once-thriving Lutheran ministries in central cities are melting away or gone.
Is Lutheranism in the cities doomed? Can Lutheranism survive without an
adequate supply of Germans? Is it possible to build a multi-racial Lutheran
community? Pastor Mark Jeske has served in Milwaukee’s central city for
over 30 years and will share stories and encouragement about St. Marcus
Lutheran Church and School and Time of Grace television.
