Rev. Mark Pendleton
Senior Pastor, Religion Teacher
B.S. in Physical Therapy, Temple University; Masters of Divinity (MDiv.) from the Academy of the New Church Theological School.
I came to the Glenview New Church and School as Associate Pastor in 2002. I became Senior Pastor in 2016. Before coming to Glenview I served as Pastor of the New Church of Phoenix, Associate Pastor of the Oak Arbor Church in Rochester, Michigan, and Associate pastor of the Caryndale New Church in Kitchener, Ontario. My greatest pleasures in teaching religion are fostering healthy teacher-student relationships, helping students learn stories from the Old and New Testaments with affection, enjoyment, and delight, helping them learn to think and act from spiritual principles, and seeing them grow in their relationships with one another and with the Lord. It is also my pleasure to be part of a faculty and church/school staff that work tirelessly and diligently to set a safe, loving context in which students can learn and grow—both spiritually and naturally.
