Mark Landrum | Sydney

Missionary

Mark Landrum grew up in Georgia, where his Jewish mother came to faith in Jesus when Mark was still a boy. He has shared his faith with others since his teen years. Mark's decision to be a missionary was made after a summer in Peru with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Mark met Jews for Jesus missionary Rahel Hirshenson on our New York Summer Witnessing Campaign in 1990, and they were wed in March 1992. Mark holds an M.A. in Jewish Missions from Fuller Theological Seminary. The Landrums are now serving in our Sydney branch.
