After undergraduate studies at North Carolina State University in Landscape Architecture, Mark continued his education at Piedmont Baptist College where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a minor in Education, graduating magna cum laude. Mark founded New Life Plantscaping, Inc. and designed and maintained interior landscapes.
In 1986 Mark sold his business and entered the financial services industry with a single purpose in mind, to help his clients become good stewards in all areas of their lives. Mark built a successful financial planning practice in Charlotte, N.C. teaching seminars on money management in churches and local colleges.
In December of 2001, Mark moved to Florida where he met his wife and best friend, Debbie. Mark began teaching seminars and workshops in local churches on the subject of “Moral Investing and Biblical Stewardship”. Mark and Debbie began praying about opening their practice and founded “Tevebaugh and Associates” in the summer of 2004. Over the next 16 years Tevebaugh and Associates grew to serve over 160 families in Florida and around the country with Biblical advice around investing and managing money.
In the fall of 2020 Tevebaugh and Associates became part of OneAscent Financial Services. This merger brings many financial planning tools and investment opportunities that were, until now unavailable to clients of Tevebaugh and Associates.
Mark and Debbie live in a small town in Idaho near the Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole, WY on 30 acres with their two horses, and 3 Chihuahuas. Mark and Debbie are active in their local church, Headwaters Calvary Chapel, where they teach a weekly couple’s study on marriage.
