Rev. Mark Breese initially joined Community Missions in September 2005 in a part-time role as Volunteer Coordinator, then accepted the call to become the full-time Agency Minister in July of 2010. A graduate of Trenton State College (now The College of N.J.) with a BA degree in Communications, he received his M.Div. from Colgate Rochester Divinity School in 1997.

In his role as Director of Ministry and Community Partnerships, Rev. Breese oversees the agency's faith services, while also building relationships and partnerships within the community. He has an open-minded and progressive theological approach to his ministry, emphasizing unity over differences and embracing ecumenical and inter-faith cooperation.

Breese has nine years of experience in parish ministry, having served at ABC-USA and United Church of Christ churches in Niagara County. The first church Rev.
