Mark and Dayna Blair serve the Beijing International Christian Fellowship (BICF) in Zhong Guan Cun (Soon) on the westside of Beijing. Their organization seeks to, “Gather, Grow, and Go.” Gather people from many nations together to worship and serve the Lord, encourage others to grow in the message of Christ, and go “make disciples” in every country and nation. Because of their obedience to their calling, they have nineteen congregations in eleven languages meeting at three locations across the city. In 1980, they started off with less than 10 members, but today their membership exceeds 3,000 people.
Mark, who holds several degrees, including a Master’s in Theology from Westminster Theological seminary, has served as the Pastor for this thriving organization since 2009. His wife Dayna enjoys teaching students how to bake. Through her baking lessons, it gives the Blairs an opportunity to open up their home for ministry and fellowship. Mark married Dayna Ann Blair, a local girl from Hilo, Hawaii on January 9th, 1982. Together they have three sons, Nathan Kapono Lee Blair, Josiah Keola Blair, and Aaron Kaniela Blair.
