Mark Vickers
Senior Pastor


We are so glad to have been appointed to Bethpage UMC! It comes
with a rich history and tradition and we are proud to be a part of such a
great church.
Mari Ed and I have been married a little over a year and look forward
to this fresh start with all of you. Mari Ed is a native of Greensboro, I am a
native of Indiana. Mari Ed has a daughter Kaitlyn who is a rising Junior at
UNCG and I have a son, Thompson who is a rising Senior at NCSU. We
have five “fur babies”; three labradors and two cats, all of which keep us
young and active.
Mari Ed has a degree from Elon University and a Masters in
Educational Counseling from NC A&T University. I have a degree in
Religion and Art History from Earlham College,and a Master of Divinity
Degree from Duke University.
We both love the church that has been a part of our lives forever and
we seek earnestly to share that love of Jesus with all whom we come in
contact. Thank you for welcoming us with such open arms and we look
forward to a fruitful ministry with all of you.
Mark and Mari Ed

Director of Youth Ministries

I've been employed at Bethpage since February of 2019. I am thrilled to be part of a team that encourages and supports youth. I have an undergraduate degree from Elon College(yes, it was a college when I graduated) in Human Services and Psychology, a Master's in Educational Counseling for NC A & T University and I hold a double professional certification in Youth Ministries and Christian Education from Pfeiffer University. I have a beautiful daughter, Kaitlyn, who will graduate from UNCG in May of 2020. I am married to Pastor Mark Vickers and we have four fur-babies that keep us very busy. I am blessed each day to work with the youth at Bethpage.
