Professional: Dr. Jacobson has been teaching Bible and theology on a graduate level for more than 15 years. He was with Northwest Baptist Seminary when it merged with Corban University in 2009. Prior to teaching at NBS, he planted a church in the Olympia, Washington area and pastored it for 21 years. While he was pastoring, he also taught Bible and theology at the Washington Baptist Teachers College in Tacoma, Washington. He has also taught overseas in the Bangladesh Theological Seminary, an extension seminary of Northwest Baptist Seminary.
Since the merger with Corban, Dr. Jacobson has written numerous articles for Corban's online journal, Dedicated. He devotes most of his time working online in the graduate ministry program.
Personal: Mark has been married to Catherine for more than 40 years and has two daughters, Brenda and Mary, and three grandchildren. When not preparing for new courses or revising old ones, Mark will be riding his bike somewhere around the Salem area, taking photographs or digging around in his yard.
Why Corban: "Working with pastors and church leaders in a seminary setting has been a joy and a privilege. When the merger with Corban took place, I welcomed the chance to continue this ministry and have it extended to the undergraduate level. The seriousness of the students and their desire to serve the Lord are impressive!"
