Mark Weakland

Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Mark Weakland and I serve as a FOCUS missionary at Saint Francis University with my wife, Kendra and our son, Sebastian.

Where We serve

God has called us to serve the students at Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania. As a graduate of The Citadel where I was a college athlete, I have a passion for serving collegiate athletic programs. As a part of my mission here, I will be able to direct my passion by serving as a chaplain for a few of the male teams on campus. Therefore, you will typically find me at team practices, traveling to games, hosting bible studies, and mentoring athletes. My wife, Kendra, serves as an affiliate missionary as a part-time chaplain for female teams as well. Together, we open our home each week to many students to break bread, build fellowship, and grow in formation each week.

We would love to be able to share how Christ has impacted our lives as well as the lives of the students we have served this past year! Please reach out to us if you are interested in being a part of our mission.


Our Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
