Bryan Marks, Elder
Bryan is Chairman of Mayflower Church’s Board of Elders, but it is his other title – Overseer of Music – for which he is best known. Mention the word “music,” and Bryan’s name comes to mind. He brings music to Mayflower Church in many forms: directing the choir at Christmas time and overseeing the Sunday music services, which blend traditional hymns with newer live music. Bryan spent his early years in Kingston and is a Silver Lake Regional High School graduate. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education (with a concentration in voice) from Eastern Nazarene College and a Master’s in Education from Fitchburg State College. Bryan taught for 35 years at Cohasset Middle-High School. Now retired, he lives in Scituate with his wife, Sandra. They have two grown sons and one precious grandson. He has many interests, including woodworking and classic cars. Proverbs 3: 5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
