Pastor Mark A. Koogler, Sr. began New Life Ministries as a prayer group in Yellow Springs, Ohio.  Soon, this ministry of New Life Worship Center (of Dayton, Ohio) would grow into Yellow Springs Apostolic Church. In 2012, the church was blessed with a building in Fairborn, Ohio and changed its name to The Apostolic Sanctuary.


Pastor Koogler is married to Sharon Koogler, and is father to four children: Amy, Mark, Brittany, and Aaron.  Pastor Koogler was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio and graduated from Kiser High School.  Pastor Koogler worked for more than 20 years of experience in shipping supervision.  Pastor Koogler enjoys fishing and many other fun activities.


The focus of Pastor Koogler's ministry is reaching people with the Gospel Message and strengthening the saints in their relationship with Jesus.

A Welcome Message from Pastor Koogler:

The word "apostolic" means "like the apostles". Here at The Apostolic Sanctuary, we are endeavoring to teach and live what Jesus taught his apostles. By the apostles' teachings, we develop into the Christians that Jesus expects us to be. We are encouraged through God's Word to love God and all of God's people. We believe the apostles' doctrine, and expect the same results as the early Church received when we do what the early Church did.


The word "sanctuary" means "a holy place", "a consecrated spot", and "a sacred site". In the Old Testament of the Bible, it was a place in the Tabernacle - and later in the Temple - called the "Holy of Holies", where only the High Priest could go to commune and connect with God - but even he only once per year! Separating this holy place from the rest of God's people was a curtain or a "veil".


When Jesus was crucified on the cross, the Bible records that the veil was torn from the top to the bottom! Now, the Presence of God is free and available for all that would receive Him and His Ways!


This is the heart of The Apostolic Sanctuary. Its door has been opened to anyone. Everyone that desires a place to meet and connect with the presence of God is welcome to come and experience the wonderful principles of God's Word, the powerful Spirit-filled atmosphere of a worship service, and the awesome Presence of Jesus Christ. This is a consecrated place where the divine service of the Lord and worship can be enjoyed, and where anyone can connect with others that also long to serve and worship Jesus.


For you who are in need of hope and refuge, protection and reviving of your heart, this is the place for you.

For anyone that is in need of the Savior, Jesus Christ, this is the place for you.

For you that desire to come and worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, this is the place for you.

And when you come, you'll find that hope, peace, and spiritual fulfilment for which you've searched.


This is the place where an altar is prepared for anyone to lay down the burdens we needlessly carry.

This is the place where anyone can come to repentance, be baptized in the only Name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved, and receive the wonderful Spirit of the Lord Jesus with the biblical evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives the ability!


The Apostolic Sanctuary is a place where anyone should feel safe and come to know that God's Love is being developed in the lives of those that have received New Testament salvation throug Jesus Christ our Lord.


The door is open. The veil is torn. Access to God's Presence is available. We hope to see you soon.
