Rev. Mark Fisk
Rev. Mark Fisk, a loving father, husband, son, and brother, passed peaceably with his family at his bedside on Monday, November 22, 2016, less than one month after being diagnosed with metastatic melanoma.
Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mark earned an Economics degree from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and went to work on Wall Street as an investment banker. After a spiritual awakening, Mark left New York to backpack around the world. He ended up in Mesa, Arizona in 1992, where he first started volunteering in Youth Ministry at Unity of Mesa. Mark found his calling as a spiritual educator. Over the next 20 years, as a Family Ministry Consultant, Licensed Unity Teacher, and Youth Pastor, Mark developed cutting-edge spiritual education programs for Unity youth & adults. He developed middle school and high school youth programs that profoundly impacted thousands of teens and their adult sponsors in Arizona, California, Nevada, and throughout the Unity movement. In addition, he facilitated adult retreats, leadership programs and teacher trainings on local, regional, and national levels. Mark returned to Unity of Mesa in December 2012 as Acting Senior Minister to guide the church through a transition period and was named permanent Senior Minister in November 2013, where he served until he made his transition.
Mark's spirit lives on in his beloved wife Ronda, daughter Alisandra, mother Shirley, two surviving siblings Daniel and Lori and their respective families, and the extended family of those who called Mark teacher, mentor, guru, and friend.
Mark requested that remembrances in his honor be made to Unity of Mesa, his spiritual home.
