Where It All Began: 1995
In 1995, John Mark Caton and his wife, Jeana, came to First Baptist Church of Fairview, where John Mark would take the position of Senior Pastor. At this time, the couple had one young son, Jace. Although the church was vibrant and growing, the family had no idea the adventure they were about to set out on.
Groundbreaking: New Campus
When we fast forward a few years, we come to the groundbreaking of the Allen Campus, which took place in 2001. At this point in time, John Mark and Jeana had expanded their family from three to five, and now had Jace, Jordan and Jensyn along for the ride!
