MassaroOrdinPRINCETON, Ind.—First Baptist Church ordained Mark Massaro, the church’s pastor of children and student ministries since 2007.

Pastor George Prinzing, First Baptist’s deacons, and six area pastors examined Massaro and recommended ordination. Then the church unanimously voted to ordain him into the ministry and celebrated together with refreshments following the ordination service.

Pastor Massaro was licensed to preach in 2006 by New Life Baptist Church, Lake in the Hills, Ill., while serving as youth pastor there. He and his wife, Cindi, were married in 1991 at First Baptist Church Hackensack, N.J., where they got their start in youth ministry.
