Emmaus Reformed Baptist Church is committed to prayerfully supporting church planting efforts. Currently, Emmaus is glad to be providing financial support to:

Mark & Christine Hogan


Mark Hogan was called by Community Baptist Church in Fargo, ND to plant Pilgrims Reformed Baptist Church in Valley City, ND.

This is Mark’s first official call, having served a ten-month internship in Anchorage, AK after completing three years of seminary. Mark graduated with a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Providence Christian College in Pasadena, CA. Upon graduation, he was married to his wife Christine and began his M. Div at Westminster Seminary, CA. He graduated from seminary in 2016.

Mark and Christine have two children, Judah and Silas.

What was once Valley Baptist Church became Pilgrims Reformed Baptist Church in August, 2017. Wayne Vleck had been the pastor of Valley Baptist Church for 12 years before being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. As the cancer got worse, he reached out to the elders of Community Baptist Church and asked them to take over the work. Mark was called to this ministry in April, 2017. Pilgrims had its first services September 24, 2017. The core group is made up of 8 people who all live in Valley City.
