Locke FamilyA Special Welcome to Mark Locke


We are honored to announce that Rev. Mark G. Locke is our new Minister of Music and Worship at Hamilton Mill UMC. 

Mark is well qualified for his new position as the Minister of Music and Worship with a Bachelors of Church Music from Kentucky Wesleyan College in Owensboro, KY, a Masters of Church Music from Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY, and 30 plus years of experience in full-time Music and Worship Ministry. Mark’s father and great grandfather were Methodist pastors, so Mark has always been involved in the life of the church.


Mark officially joined the church staff this week. He has hit the ground running, but he took the time to chat with us about his new position.


What is your vision for your position? 

To establish a real sense  of thematic worship throughout the worship life of HMUMC, to establish and in some cases further develop and strengthen a fully graded vocal and instrumental program for instruction in music and other worship arts to take HMUMC to the next level.


Where would you like to see your ministry in 5 years?  

Additional offerings to members of our church and community to foster learning and growing in the use and presentation of their God-given talents in worship and witness.


Where are you praying for people to help? 

To offer themselves as servants to help lead the people of God in this place. There is no talent too small and no gift is insignificant. If God gave you a gift, you should be using it for the Lord.


Anything else you would like to add?  

I am thrilled to be a part of what God is doing here at HMUMC and I am so thankful to be working side by side with such gifted and committed laity, staff and pastors for the cause of Christ!


Please join us in welcoming Rev. Mark G. Locke, his wife, Donna, and their two sons, Nathaniel (6th grade) and Jonathan (Kindergarten) to our church family. You will get to meet Mark Locke this Sunday at all three worship services.

    I am so excited for Mark and all the possibilities that lays before him at Hamilton Hill. I’m more excited for the family of God there at Hamilton Hill to be in ministry with this man of God leading you in worship. Mark is a child hood friend, who served as Best Man in our wedding. His family holds a special place in my heart as his father was my pastor for many years. I know God will bless you as you serve together and grow to love his family. May all the blessings of God be with you as you share the love of God with each other

    Blessings! Becky.
