Pastor Clark was born and raised in North Pole, Alaska. He grew up in a middle-class home and went to church regularly. However, he never had a clear presentation of the gospel until age 15. As a result of his parents divorced he and his father were driven to Bible Baptist Church in Fairbanks, Alaska, under pastor Doug Duffett. It was there he heard a clear presentation of the gospel and accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour. A few months after Bro Clark got saved, he felt God was calling him to be a preacher; so he surrendered to the full time ministry.
Our pastor graduated from North Pole High School in 1992 and then attended Hyles-Anderson College in 1993. He graduated with a Pastoral Theology degree in the year 2000. Our pastor has over 25 years of active ministry experience including over 17 years pastoring. Aurora Baptist Church was started by him and his wife, Gloria, in March of 2016. This ministry is experiencing Gods blessing in growth numerically and spiritually. Hundreds of people are saved and baptized annually and the presence of God is evident.
