Mark and Janet Dance

Janet and Mark met in college and were married in 1988. Both of their adult children, Holly (husband Brandon), and Brad live in Arkansas. 

Janet recently hung up her Registered Dietitian license to sell real estate with Keller Williams Realty, which allows her the flexibility to travel and speak to ministry couples with Mark. Don’t let her heels and highlights fool you, because she loves power tools and backpacking!

Mark has pastored churches for 29 years and has been the Director of LifeWay Pastors since 2014. He enjoys bowhunting, preaching, writing, and encouraging ministry couples with Janet. Mark speaks to 5,000 pastors, seminarians, and ministry spouses at about thirty events a year. 

He graduated from Howard Payne University (BBA), Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (D.Min).
