Mark Moore receives W.A. Criswell evangelism award

EULESS—The Southern Baptists of Texas awarded pastor Mark Moore with the W.A. Criswell Lifetime Achievement Award in Pastoral Evangelism at the Empower Conference, Feb. 25.

Moore has served as pastor of Lakeside Baptist Church in Canton since 1989. An East Texas native, Moore graduated with his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Tyler. He later earned his master’s degree at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a doctorate at Tyndale Seminary. Prior to his pastorate at Lakeside, he served as a minister of education and youth at First Baptist Church in Dayton; as minister of education/administration/evangelism at First Baptist Church in Humble; and minister of education and administration at First Baptist Church in Corsicana. 

“To receive an award with Dr. Criswell’s name attached to it, to be honest, I can’t wrap my brain around it,” Moore said as he accepted the award. “I receive it on behalf of the church that I serve, a great group of people who understand the purpose of the church—to glorify God in all things.”
