Pastor Mark Vereen is a native of New Haven, CT. He was raised in a Christian environment that produced a man of integrity, great influence and vision. It was certain and without a doubt that this young man would positively impact the lives of others and ultimately please God.
At the young impressionable age of 12, Pastor Vereen accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. He was baptized and filled with the precious Holy Spirit under the powerful ministry of Overseer Ardean Richardson. It was during this time that Pastor Vereen gleaned from the ‘seasoned saints’ in intercession, fasting and studying God’s Word. Surely, a unique ministry was birthed and cultivated while being in the presence of God. This ministry would inspire men, women, boys & girls – winning many souls to the Kingdom of God.
As a young minister, he received valuable teaching and mentoring from great leaders in the Kingdom such as: Bishop C. H. Brewer,Jr. – Trinity Temple COGIC-New Haven, CT and Dr. John H. Boyd, Sr.-New Greater Bethel Ministries- Jamaica, NY
After much prayer and seeking the Lord, he became the Founder/Pastor of The Center of Hope Life Changing Church (Home of Hope Christian Ministries) in Richmond, VA.

In addition to the assignment of Shepherd, he continues to operate as a Prophet, Evangelist and teacher in the Body of Christ all over this country.
