"Then Jesus told his disciples, 'If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?'"

Matthew 16:24-26, ESV

Director of Musical Worship

Mark Seelye

Mark was born and raised here in Napa, and as a "church kid," began his relationship with our Lord as a child at home and in Sunday School. Always interested in music, he began playing drums and guitar in youth groups as a teen. As a Cub Scout his den visited a local nursing home, interacting with the residents and passing out checkers games. This planted a seed of ministering in care homes with music which began as a teen and continues today.

Mark and his wife Valerie have been married for over 45 years with two adult children and a grandson.


"Praying that you may be filled with the knowledge of God's will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.... pleasing the Lord and being fruitful in every good work...."
