Mark & Lynne

Mark and Lynne Massey joined the Victory staff in 1995. After serving as houseparents for three years, Mark was asked to take the director position. Since ’98, Mark has not only directed the ministry, he has also regularly involved himself in the lives of the guys.

Mark trusted Jesus Christ as Savior as a teenager and went on to grow in the Lord. He served on a bus route and took missions trips to Mexico and Haiti that opened up his eyes and heart to the needs of the world for the Lord Jesus Christ. After spending the summer of 1986 in Haiti he moved from North Texas back to his childhood home area in central Florida where he met LynneLynne works alongside Mark, counseling moms, planning and preparing meals, and squeezing in secretarial work. Both are involved in the ministries of their local church. Lynne sings in the choir, does special music, serves in the nursery, and organizes the “meals for those in need” program.

Lynne was saved as a child and saw God work in her life through many people in her local church and Christian school. She traveled a summer with the Academy of Arts drama team and ministered faithfully in her local church. It was at her church during her senior year of high school that she met Mark. After their marriage in May of 1988, they served together in various programs of their church.

After four years of ministering to teens and their families, Mark and Lynne believed that God would have them get more training and commit their lives to full-time vocational ministry. In 1992 they moved to Wisconsin to complete their undergraduate training at Northland Baptist Bible College, both graduating with bachelor degrees in 1995. Mark later completed his Master of Arts in Theology/Biblical Counseling from Central Baptist Theological Seminary in Minneapolis, MN in May of 2008.

Mark and Lynne have five children: Laura, Rory, Russell, Grace, and Emma.
