Working Experience

Dr. Saucy's interests lie primarily in the areas of systematic and biblical theology. Before coming to Talbot he and his family served as missionaries for thirteen years with SEND International in Kyiv, Ukraine, assigned to encourage and develop theological education in Eurasia. Living in Ukraine also stimulated an interest in patristics and comparative theology with the Eastern Orthodox Church. Dr. Saucy has taught regularly at theological institutions throughout Ukraine and the Evangelische Theologische Facultait in Leuven, Belgium. Since coming to Talbot in 2007, Dr. Saucy continues his affiliation with the Eurasia region as Director of Talbot's extension program at Kyiv Theological Seminary and as member of the editorial board of the Eurasian theological journal, Theological Reflections. He is the author of The Kingdom of God in the Teaching of Jesus, articles in The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Trinity Journal, Bibliotheca Sacra and other numerous other works for the Union of Evangelicals-Christians Baptist of Ukraine. He is active in his local church and strives for theological reflection and teaching that is transformative for his own soul and the souls of his students into the image of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Family

Our family began in 1992 when Mark and Bonnie were married in our home church—where we still attend, Granada Heights Friends Church in La Mirada California. Our oldest son, Ben—now 21, was born 16 months later and Josh, our youngest, joined us in 1997 (17 years old now). This means that Bonnie is very busy with her three tall boys. But she loves it. And we love her!

All of our early family life was spent in the country of Ukraine, where we moved in 1994 as missionaries to do theological education with SEND International. Even though we returned to live in America in 2007, it is nevertheless true that Ben and Josh’s childhood years are indeed Ukrainian—Ukrainian food, language, church, schools and friends are some of our family’s fondest memories.

Our return to America 8 years ago introduces another significant part of our family’s story. Cancer. A recurrence of Bonnie’s cancer in 2007 meant we needed to be closer to doctors, so we moved back. Although we are still dealing with continual chemotherapies, scans and side effects, each one in our family has shared the Lord’s presence in powerful ways to walk this road together. We all know what the grace of our God looks like and we know we can expect it to for every turn in the road ahead.

And much has happened in the last 8 years. Mark began working for Talbot School of Theology. Ben will be starting his 4th year at Biola University this fall studying Intercultural Studies and Business. Josh will be in his last year of High School and looking forward to going to Biola or another Christian College when that’s done. Bonnie continues “raising her boys” but is also active at our church, and recently, volunteering at a non-profit organization in our area that ministers to families and children in poverty.
