Mark Burgess


Mark was appointed to Walker Chapel by the bishop of the United Methodist Church in Virginia beginning 1 July 2015 after faithfully serving churches in Pennsylvania and Virginia.

He earned his B.A. in religious studies from Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pennsylvania, and graduated cum laude with a M. Div. from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

While serving churches in Tidewater, Virginia, Mark also taught for many years as an adjunct professor of philosophy and religious studies at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia, and worked as a free lance writer for The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Virginia, reviewing newly published books.

An avid cyclist and hiker, you may well spot him either cruising the streets of Arlington or hiking the C&O Canal.

"Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God"
