MEET THE 4POINTSKIDS TEAM
Leading the Way to Excellence
BOB & CAROL MARDOCK
Founders, 4Points Family Services/4PointsKids
Carol Mardock serves as Executive Director of 4Points Family Services. In addition to being a gifted administrator, Carol is entrepreneurial at heart and loves creating “new futures” in the arena of child advocacy. She has started and directed 11 different adoption/foster agencies in 9 different states. Carol is co-founder of International Family Services, and an integral part of the formation of 4PointsKids (read about it here), and holds multiple teaching credentials. She taught for many years in special education which she finds very helpful with her work in foster care and adoptions.
Bob and Carol have been married since 1974 and are parents to 10 children, four biological kids and six they adopted. Carol likes to tell people that it’s a lot easier to get out of bed in the morning the day after an adoption than it is the day after giving birth. The Mardocks have foster-parented 12 children and a temporary home for many others needing a safe place. They also claim 18 grand children, 1 great great grandchild – and counting.
When Carol was a little girl she dreamed of building an orphanage and helping orphans and marginalized children. As an adult she saw her dreams come true when she and Bob had the opportunity of managing the funding of 3 orphanage-building projects, countless other special projects while helping thousands of families and children find each other (5000 adoptions).
Bob also serves on the 4Points Family Services Board of Directors. He is a life-long adoption and foster-care advocate and comes from a background in organizational development, church planting, pastoral ministry, public relations, and leadership and consulting in non-profit organizations. He loves tinkering on his almost classic 1988 Ford pickup and 1986 American Skier ski boat. The Mardocks live in Georgetown, Texas and are members of Celebration Church where they both serve as Ministering Elders.

Board of Directors
When Zion began pursuing her Masters in Marriage & Family Counseling, she was not sure why the Lord was leading in that direction. In Zion’s own words, “My prayer was just for Him to use the training I’d receive for His Kingdom. The possibility of serving foster parents and children is an answer to that prayer in a way I never expected. I believe very much in the vision of 4PointsKids, and the simplicity in obedience to God’s character to 'place the lonely in families.' (Psalm 68:6). I did not grow up knowing Jesus. I was abused as a child by many people I trusted. It wasn’t until college that I encountered Christ and His Church. Through the church, I was stripped of my chains and old hurts and false identities and began walking as a child of God. After getting married, my husband and I began serving as youth pastors at Celebration Church in 2016. I have gotten to see God do incredible things in the hearts and minds of young people, just like He did in mine. We have a huge love for the next generation and believe that there is a revival coming through powerful, practical works of the church, just like 4PointsKids is. Much of my story seems to be leading me to a moment like this one, and I am eager to put my experience to work for this mission of bringing hope. I am honored to serve alongside this team.” Zion is married to Avery and together they have one son.
