Mark Butcher works full-time as an intentional interim pastor, moving to a new location each year in order to assist churches that are in some level of crisis, to bring them into a healthy state. He and his wife, Paula have made their home base in a small cabin just outside of Rapid City. After raising three sons and keeping way too busy, I picked up stained glass, along with other art mediums, in the last 2 years.
For Mark art is a spiritual experience and he approaches it as a spiritual discipline. He believes God is a creator and we are made in his image. Therefore, we were created to be creators. Art is one of the avenues in which he can fulfill his calling.
