About Mark Pierson
Mark Pierson is passionate about designing worship events and spaces that enable people, inside and outside the church, to engage with the Trinitarian community of God in creative, life-giving, formative and transformative ways.
He is an accredited minister of the Baptist Churches in New Zealand, and over the last 25 years has developed the model of worship curator for the design of worship events. In that time he has written extensively, curated worship events, and led seminars in churches, institutions and festivals around the world on the integration of the arts, faith, and justice using the worship curation model.
Mark’s Master of Ministry (MCD) was an analysis of how God can speak through art – specifically contemporary Stations of the Cross. His 2010 book “The Art of Curating Worship: reshaping the role of worship leader”, is his further contribution to this discussion.
Mark currently curates a weekly worship event, Rhythms of Grace, in Auckland, focused on spiritual formation. He has been married to Robyn for 42 years and they have 4 children and 4 grandchildren.
