About the Welches
In February 2009, the Welches answered the call to begin The Pointe Church in Antelope/West Roseville. Since then, The Pointe has become a young, but growing dynamic influence for God’s Kingdom in the Sacramento region.
Mark and Lori have been married since 1982 and have three sons: David (married to Rachel), Nathan( married to Gemma who have two children and are expecting their 3rd), and Jonathan. All three Welch sons are singer/songwriters, and are known as The Welch Brothers, a Contemporary Country Band. They all love Jesus and are called to change the world for Him from the platform of performing and music.
Lori loves serving in the ministry with Mark. She is also an Entrepreneur. According to Lori, “The financial challenges of church planting created the need for me to roll up my sleeves and go to work to help provide for our family needs. God has opened door after door and has blessed my efforts abundantly in an Ephesians 3:20 way.” After moving to California, Lori became an award winning, Senior Marketing Executive for “Fortune 500” Title Companies in the Sacramento Region. She is now a Realtor in Roseville, CA, and runs an international home-based Directs Sales business. She is also well-known as a coach for others in similar fields, and enjoys adding value to others lives by training them for success. In addition to this, she loves serving with Mark as the Lead Pastoral team at The Pointe, and serves as overseer and coach to the Student Ministries team, and as the Marketing Director for The Pointe. Lori headed the Pointe Legacy Project.
