Mark is available for…..
Preaching/Teaching… At the heart of any Christian ministry is the Bible, and this is no exception with Mark’s ministry. As an experienced expository preacher, he is able to open up the Word of God clearly, intelligently and passionately. He strives to bring out the meaning of Scripture for the glory of God, the good of the believer, and the salvation of the lost. Series or seminars on Biblical worship for the church are also available, each based off of his book Worship Under The Influence: Rediscovering the Joy of Acceptable Worship.
Worship Leading… Mark has been leading worship for over 20 years now full-time. He is comfortable working with a band, or he can “un-plug” for an acoustic only style. Using a blend of ancient hymns, contemporary choruses and singer/songwriter originals, he aims for Christ to be formed in His people and the church unified across all age groups in a time of corporate worship.
Concerts… Mark is an accomplished songwriter (Playground Writer’s Group Nashville, TN) and instrumentalist. Using guitar & hammer dulcimer, his music is a unique blend of acoustic folk/pop with hints of Americana & Celtic influences. All age groups will be encouraged to follow God and blessed through the songs and stories Mark shares.
Retreats (elders/deacons/worship teams)… Mark can help lead your church group in a more intimate way through summer camps, weekend and/or day retreats. Biblical topics can be selected or Mark can discuss with you areas of spiritual formation that might be good for your church group.
Advice/Guidance for worship services… With over 25 years experience in the local church as a worship pastor, Mark is available for consulting on any area of worship you might need help with in your context. He is particularly able to help church leaders think through such various issues of balancing both a traditional and contemporary worship service.
