John Parlow

Lead Pastor

John Parlow currently serves as lead pastor at St. Mark Ministries in the greater Green Bay, WI area.  His worldview and philosophy of ministry may be best summed up by the following: “When sharing the Gospel, you always need to be willing to think outside the box, because one day everybody is going to be in one.”

As a conference speaker, author, adjunct professor and pastor, his passion for God’s Word and desire to reach people far from Jesus with it is palpable.

Dr. Parlow has served congregations in South Dakota, Wisconsin and Asian Lutheran Seminary in Hong Kong. He is a graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and has continued his education at South Dakota State University, Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Concordia Theological Seminary and Denver Seminary where he earned his Doctorate.

John is married to his wife, Lydia, and they have three grown sons.  His interests, when time allows, include the martial arts, pistol shooting and binging on the Food Network.
