SPRINGFIELD, Missouri- It is with great sadness that we relay the news that one of our Global University family members, Mark Van Gorp, Media Operations Manager, unexpectedly passed away on Tuesday, July 9, 2013. He was 58 years old.
Mark and his wife, Anita, served as pastors in Iowa, Kansas and Indiana before becoming Assemblies of God World Missionaries with International Media Ministries, based out of Belgium, from 1991 to 2004. He then joined the Global University team in July of 2005. Mark’s role has long been with media; using technology to evangelize, disciple and train people around the world, especially in sensitive countries.
The VanGorps have three adult children: Jannah (Virginia), Ben (Missouri) and Aaron (Missouri). Please remember Anita and their children and grandchildren, as well as their extended family members and friends, in prayer as they deal with this devastating loss.
