Mark DossettCommunity Center Pastor


My connection to Eastview goes back to 1987, when I found my home here as a recent graduate of Illinois State and a newbie to State Farm. My wife of over 30 years, Karen, is an educator at Metcalf and also an ISU grad. Together we enjoyed the experience of a lifetime in loving/serving displaced persons from Iran and Afghanistan in Vienna, Austria from 1993 to 2007. Because of that experience, we make sure to get Persian food whenever we can. Delicious! We have four grown boys, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren who make us proud and delight our hearts. I want to do all I can to help each person live out the rich and beautiful life God has in mind for them and love Him with her/his whole heart!
