Mark and Betty Eaton come to Indy after a dedicated tenner as missionaries, both domestic and abroad.
Mark attended Columbia Union College, now Washington Adventist University, while working part-time in the General Conference Treasury Department, 1974-1977. He then served the Pennsylvania Conference three years as assistant treasurer and later completed a Masters in Business Administration from Andrews University where he met his wife, Betty Nelson.
The Christ-centered couple embarked on an overseas adventure to serve the Far Eastern Division (now split into two divisions) as associate treasurer in Singapore. Three years later they moved to the Guam-Micronesia Mission where Mark served the Guam Adventist Clinic as administrator. In this capacity, Mark maneuvered the clinic through severe financial difficulties. While in Guam, Betty opened an early childhood education center. It grew from a small core of four children in 1990, to 46 in 1996 and offered programs for children from ages three to nine. Betty holds a Masters in Education.
The Eatons then ministered at the Universitas Advent Indonesia (“Indonesia Union College”). Political unrest rocked the nation of Indonesia during their three-year stay. The Eatons returned to the U. S. in 2000. They come to Indiana after serving nine years in the Oklahoma Conference as treasurer. They step into this position after George Crumley, previous Indiana Conference Treasurer, accepted a call as treasurer in the Rocky Mountain Conference and moved to the Denver, Colorado area.
Mark has a solid background in accounting and finance. Recently completing his CPA, he is known for fairness and loving the Lord.
Brother Eaton, his wife, Betty and their granddaughter, Kristianna, come to us passionate about soul winning and Adventist education.
Mark and Betty Eaton celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary on April 10. They have three grown children and three grandchildren.
