Mark Abe is a native Minnesotan who has been in Northern VA for almost 38 years and at Foundry for the past 19.  He was raised United Methodist but his spiritual journey took him through Baptist, interdenominational, and Episcopal churches before coming full circle back to the Methodist church when he joined Foundry.

He has served as co-leader of the LGBT group, member of the Books to Prisons ministry, Scripture reader, Sacred Resistance team member, and communion steward.

Recently retired, he now enjoys waking up naturally and pursuing interests in writing, photography, and Spanish, as well as volunteering for the DC Rawhides, a non-profit organization that hosts regular gay country/western dance (two-step/line dance) events. He lives with his feline employer, Gonzalo, in Alexandria but hopes to relocate to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
