After an extensive search, UCHM welcomes Rev. Mark Howell as the new Executive Director as Sue Gentry retires at the end of June. Since 2006, Rev. Howell has been Minister of Missions for the First Baptist Church and the Executive Director of the Mission Frankfort Clinic, a free medical and dental clinic serving uninsured persons in Franklin Co. With a BA from Carson Newman College in his native Tennessee, Mark went on to earn his Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary.
“Living in the Princeton area for 8 years was transformational for us,” Mark explained, as he and his wife, Penny, occupied a place where “rich and poor, black, white, brown, educated, and street wise all came together to intersect, to enjoy giving and receiving.” While there, Mark saw firsthand how generational poverty and other barriers can be insurmountable. Those insights led him to pursue a Master of Social Work (MSW) at Hunter College in New York.
After his wife completed her PhD in Education at Columbia University, the family relocated to Kentucky where Penny taught at UK while Mark finished up his MSW degree requirements. As Mark comes to UCHM, he notes, “the incredible work Sue has been doing for 36 years… is nothing short of extraordinary. I am honored and humbled to be the next Executive Director and know it will be a tremendous challenge to follow someone who has been so steadfast and faithful to the mission.”
