"Unless the Lord builds the House, they labor in vain who build it" (Psalm 127:1)

The believer’s home is a Christ-centered home; a place where the written Word of God is taught, honored, read and known.


By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; by knowledge its rooms are filled with all kinds of precious and pleasing treasures (Proverbs 24:3-4)

About Us

Mark and Tami were born and raised in the USA.  We are Christian which means we are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.  We are not followers of any political, social, religious or organizational structures and alliances. We simply choose to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

We both came to know the the Lord Jesus when we were children and were blessed to sit under the teaching of godly brethren who taught the Word of God.  Mark fellowshipped at Central Bible Chapel in Palisades Park, NJ, and Tami at Bethany Gospel Chapel, in Worcester, MA. 

Tami received a BS degree in Biblical Studies and Elementary Education from Emmaus Bible College.  Mark received a BA from the University of Delaware in Communications (Public Relations) and Foreign Language/Literature (Spanish) and an MA from Rutgers University in Education, teaching English as a second/foreign language

Mark and Tami lived in Poland from February, 1998 to October 2008.  They have 6 children.

Mark worked in Nowy Sacz, Poland, teaching English and Mass Communication at WSB-NLU. He also helped founded Ampersand, a magazine for the school.

Today, Mark teaches the Word of God (in Poland and the USA), and Tami is often asked to teach at women’s meetings. We fellowship at Monterey Bible Chapel, in the Lacaster, PA area. Our focus as Christians is to preach the gospel, teach the Word of God, and practice Christ-centered Christianity. 

We work primarily with a brethren group in Poland known as the Free Christians (see also here). 

We also work in Poland with Word of Life International, an organization that preaches the gospel and teaches the Word of God to young people.  See Word of Life in Poland
