Mark Groleau

Mark GorleauSeminary Student Council President Mark Groleau will be completing his MDiv in Pastoral Studies and Biblical Languages this spring. For two years, Groleau has led the Seminary Student Council while he pursued his MDiv. In reflecting on his experience at Tyndale, Groleau states, “The whole experience was so shaping, I’m not the person I was 4 years ago.” Groleau cites the multi-denominational aspect of Tyndale as crucial to his development as a Christian leader and in teaching him to engage in thoughtful dialogue.

In the classroom Groleau learned theology and ministry skills, and on the council, he was given the opportunity to put these lessons into practice. Groleau is grateful to his fellow council members for giving him grace and patience in his development as a leader.
During his time on Council, Groleau and his team played an integral role in Tyndale’s Green Initiative, educating students on environmental issues and encouraging them to participate in the school’s efforts in caring for God’s creation.

After graduating from Tyndale, Groleau hopes to work for the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec as a pastor. Groleau has a heart for urban missions and feels his Tyndale education and experience on Council have prepared him to make a lasting impact.
