Favorite verse: Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

John Mark Kuhns was born in Arthur, Illinois, and spent most of his developing years near Middlefield, Ohio. He earned a bachelor of arts in biomedical humanities from Hiram College in 2006, with a view toward pursuing a career in medicine. Instead, his 2008 detour into teaching led him to a career in education. He currently teaches grades 9-10 at Faith Builders Christian School.

Desirée (Brubaker) Kuhns was born in South Carolina. Her family moved to Guys Mills, Pennsylvania, when she was 8. She graduated from Faith Builders Christian School in 2009 and then completed the Teacher Apprenticing Program offered by FBTI in 2012. She taught one year at Barnwell Christian School in Barnwell, South Carolina, before marrying John Mark.
John Mark and Desirée  were married in 2013. They have four children: Nevaeh, Shane, Asher, and Zoe. They enjoy solving crossword puzzles, reading out loud to their children, being involved in school activities, and spending time with family and friends. It is their desire that God’s work would be accomplished and His kingdom established through their work.
