Mark Ohlson, as Coordinator of Volunteers, Hospitality and Outreach, focuses on encouraging, educating, and advocating FUMC volunteers to participate not only in our congregation’s ministries but also with the wider Portland community. Mark provides staff support to Church and Society, Planet Church, Global Missions, and the Library Committees. On Sunday mornings you can find Mark in Collins Hall helping guide activities there. This passion for social justice volunteering led Mark to his current position at FUMC. In his words, “I feel by working with our entire congregation here, I can do so much more for those in need than I could do working on my own.” Mark also volunteers one day each week as an Intake Counselor at William Temple House, a Portland social services agency.
