Mark E. Lail was selected as the Executive Vice President for the Christian Network Foundation by Board election in March 2012. Prior to the Foundation, he was a pastor for over 20 years, most recently at a church in southern Ohio.
Lail believes that the Foundation is an important piece of the puzzle for funding many ministries and sees this as an exciting partnership with unlimited potential for maximizing local church giving. He is honored by the expression of confidence that the Foundation Board and President Roney have placed in him.
He serves as chief operations officer for the Foundation with responsibility for oversight of office operations and donor and institutional planned-giving development for local and regional church ministries, with the goal of long-term ministry sustainability. He holds an advanced degree in Spiritual Formation and Church Growth from Fuller Theological Seminary.
Lail and his wife, Ruth, live in DeSoto, Kansas, and have five daughters, two grandsons, and one granddaughter.
