Mark Gilmer, disciple-maker and a man of God, went to his eternal reward on July 21, 2010. He is mourned by family and friends from all over the country.
I gained the opportunity to know Mark over the years through Bible Quiz, as many did. Most recently, many of us saw Mark at National Finals in Troy, Michigan in early July. Mark has always been an inspiration because of his selfless devotion and effort in discipling students through Bible Quiz, coupled with a relentlessly positive attitude despite the many obstacles he faced in life.
Even though our interaction was limited by time and geography, I will miss Mark greatly. I am rejoicing wtih him in the healing he has now received. He has most certainly “quizzed out positively” with a bonus that we can only imagine.
