Ministry Abroad

Woodville Baptist Church currently helps support Mark and Helen Begarly's work through Zimbabwe Outreach Ministries.


Truly Mark & Helen exist in a limbo status between two worlds, but the Zimbabwe Staff was quite full!Mark & Helen are both native to Southern Indiana where they spent most of their childhood. Mark was a block mason for 20 years and started his own construction company.

The Lord called Mark & Helen into the preaching ministry and he began attending Louisville Bible College. In 1987 he moved the family (Annette, Melissa, & Heather) to Knoxville, TN to attend Johnson University (then Bible College). Mark preached at Meadowbrook Christian Church and continued full-time after graduating. In 1992, Mark and Helen once again answered the Lord's call to further the kingdom by moving to Zambia to work with the established Zambia Christian Mission. Heather being the youngest, joined them on the mission field. In 1996 the Begarly's had made the move to Zimbabwe to start a Camp Ministry and since then many more have been started.

When on furlough Knoxville, TN is called home. When not in Knoxville Mark and Helen can usually be found at an interstate Cracker Barrel as they tour the US, updating the supporting Churches, preaching revivals, and spending time at VBS' and Camps.

Mark and Helen's three daughters all married and stayed in Knoxville. They also have 6 grandchildren.
