Biography and Professional Achievements

Dr. John Mark Lamb married Nancy in 1975. They have three grown children and six grandchildren, highlights of their lives. They live in Louisville, Colorado and love to hike and climb Colorado's Fourteeners.

Lamb has served full time with Campus Crusade for Christ, International since 1976, serving one year living and working in Moscow, Russia with his family 1993/94 with the CoMission. Lamb worked with public school teachers teaching a curriculum, "Christian Ethics and Morality: A Foundation for Society at the request of the Russian Ministry of Education. He currently serves as Spiritual Formation Pastor at Cornerstone Church in Boulder, CO and as spiritual director for the Oakley House in Boulder.

As an educator, Lamb considers it a high privilege to be a part of CCU's culture of "irrigating deserts." Not that students are "dry" but rather that they intuitively know that their love for God and his work in the world is a part of an integrated whole. They flower when watered. It is a beautiful thing to behold.

When people learn together, they display God's creative work within them as vice regents and co-creators with the Trinity, the womb of creation. Lamb does not think it possible that people can learn without exercising faith, whether one thinks they are a person of faith or not. Learning anything requires a certain level of humility and trust. The act of learning shows that people are image bearers of God and when they reflect his image they become more human, not less. Jesus was the perfect God Man and in his humanity "although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered." Christians live and learn by the faith of Jesus. Paul tells Christians in his letter to the Galatians, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me, "(KJV). Christians live and learn by the faith of Jesus, himself.
