Mark was born into a Christian family and raised in Texas. Growing up in a pastor’s home, Mark had exposure to many pastors. At age five, he accepted Christ and a few years later felt called to be a pastor (preaching his first sermon at age 12). While serving in the US Air Force at Goodfellow AFB, Mark met his wife Ginger at church. Mark and his wife Ginger were married in 1996 and have four children: Reagen (19), Kennedy (17), Lincoln (15), and Madison (12).
Mark is a graduate of Liberty Theological Seminary and began serving in full-time ministry in 1997. After serving in San Angelo, TX for fifteen years, the Riggins family moved to California in 2011 where Mark served as an Associate
Pastor at Encounter Church in Ventura, CA and then Lead Pastor of Calvary Church in the Bay Area (Los Gatos, CA). As a family, the Riggins enjoy camping, traveling, and conversations around the dinner table. Mark is a painfully devoted Dallas Cowboys fan.
The Riggins family is grateful God has chosen to “bring them home” and join the LifePoint family. Mark is honored to succeed PG’s 32-year faithful leadership as Senior Pastor at LifePoint. Mark’s prayer is that God would bring a spiritual renewal resulting in more people discovering the hope of Jesus!
