Mark Koenig’s journey in ministry has taken him from Diagonal, Iowa to Cleveland Heights, Ohio to Louisville, Kentucky and now to New York, New York. He has been a co-pastor and a member of a presbytery staff. He has served in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A)’s antiracism initiative and the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program. Now serving as the director of the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations, he works to inspire and equip Presbyterians to live as disciples in the global neighborhood and to help Presbyterians engage in advocacy, based on General Assembly policy, in the United Nations community. He arranges seminars and other events, preaches and teaches, writes prayers and study materials, and goes to meetings with Presbyterians, ecumenical and interfaith partners and representatives of non-governmental organizations, United Nations programs, and member state missions to the United Nations. In his free time, he watches movies, bangs on a guitar and writes the odd poem.
