Full biography

Dr. Mark Turman is from Tyler, Texas. Raised as a child in the Catholic Church, Mark made a personal commitment to faith in Christ at seventeen through the witness of the Bible and two friends. He soon joined Green Acres Baptist Church, where he was discipled and responded to a call to ministry.

After thirty-four years pastoring four churches in Texas, including twenty-five years as the founding pastor of Crosspoint Church in McKinney, he became Executive Director of Denison Forum and Senior Contributor for Leadership in October 2021.

Mark’s vision is to partner with Dr. Jim Denison and the ministry team to deepen a transformational connection with believers, and especially to pastors and church leaders. As Denison Forum continues to develop culture-changing Christians, our hope is to encourage, edify, and equip the equippers who are leading local churches.
