Mark & Val Hazzard

Global Workers in Latin America/Caribbean Area


Mark Hazzard is an ordained minister with the PAOC where he has pastored in the Western Ontario District since 1980. He and Val have served at churches in Petrolia, Huntsville, Barrie, and most recently as Lead Pastor at Parkwood Gospel Church in Windsor for 22½ years. Mark has a heart and passion for missions and family. He loves reading and teaching the Word, listening to southern gospel music, watching the Leafs, eating Cinnabon, and spoiling his grandkids. He and Val have been married for over 38 years and have three married children and seven adorable grandchildren.


After pastoring for 38 years, Mark and Val felt directed in late 2017 to consider becoming global workers.


Mark and Val have recently been appointed to serve as Regional Director of Missions in the Latin America/Caribbean region. They have been called to help PAOC global workers focus on spiritual transformation, which includes ministry to the marginalized, humanitarian relief and development, education and training of children and youth, and market place ministry. Their passion is to challenge believers at home and abroad to become fully engaged in missions.
