The Rev. MP Panco began serving at St. Mark in November of 2019 after two years in Brunswick, Ohio as a Youth and Christian Education Director. She received her Master of Divinity degree from The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary. MP has served as the Spiritual Director for ecumenical women’s groups, youth events and mission teams and has served in a variety of leadership and support positions.

Outside of St. Mark, MP enjoys the thrill of learning about and taking on new things; some of which have included; skydiving, four-wheeling, and allowing a tarantula to crawl on her arm. Some of her hobbies are playing the trumpet, reading, hiking, crocheting, and hanging out with her nieces. MP now resides in Manchester, Missouri with her husband Carl and is quickly becoming a Blues and Cardinals fan. But having lived most of her life in the Cleveland, Ohio area, MP is a die-hard Cleveland sports fan cheering on the Browns, the Indians and the Cavaliers.

MP loves people and is excited about the journey God has planned for her as she walks with the people of St. Mark. She has a passion for mission; and desires to join with St. Mark in its work to serve locally, nationally and internationally. “Don’t hesitate to be enthusiastic—be on fire in the Spirit as you serve the Lord!” Romans 12:11 CEB
