First Loved Ministries: Taste and See Speaker Bios
MARK GORDON FEE, founder and Executive Director of First Loved Ministries, received a BA in Christian Education from Wheaton College, a Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Talbot School of Theology. Prior to launching First Loved Ministries, Mark was the lead pastor of the Vineyard Metro-north church for 17 years where God forged these materials in and through that beloved community. In 2006, God called him out of pastoring locally to be his “FIRST LOVED” messenger to the whole church, a role he cherishes and enjoys immensely. A dynamic worship leader and songwriter, Mark has also been playing piano, singing, and writing for most of his life. Mark and his wife Robin have five adult children, and currently live in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
RACHEL DELGADO is a teacher and curriculum developer who has served church communities in Florida, Indiana, Hawaii, Illinois, and most recently in Austin, Texas. In the past, she designed and implemented children's and youth discipleship programs that focused on foundational theology and prayer practices. She has a B.A. in Christian Educational Ministries from Taylor University and it was while pursuing her Masters of Divinity at Northern Seminary that she met Mark, and first experienced First Loved Ministries’ practices. This encounter radically changed her life and she is thrilled to now be a part of sharing the message of FLM with everyone! Rachel and her husband Jeffrey enjoy living in Austin TX, after a decade in the Midwest. When she isn’t working she spends her time sipping coffee and cuddling with her two hound dogs and her cat.
