What Others Have Said

  • Mark's presentation is a direct and honest talk that looks to break down the stigma of mental health. He gives teens an understanding of how to deal with their own mental health and help others who are struggling.

  • Mark is the best person to speak to youth about the gospel that I know of. He makes sure to lay out the whole gospel (repentance, work of the cross, etc) and yet makes it very relevant to what youth are dealing with (emotional issues, relationships, sex, current idols, etc). When he speaks somewhere, people want him back because, as the Spirit works, hearts are touched and changed.

  • It is obvious that Mark cares about youth & teens, and their mental well-being. He talks candidly about a wide range of mental health issues and clinical mental health disorders. His talk reminds all of us that our role is not to fix, but to listen, be there, and connect & care for each other and our community.

  • Mark is a down to earth speaker who uses his personal experiences to bring attention to the issues of mental illness. His use of video and power point presentations, complement his message in a way that appeals to students. Creating awareness about the stigmas attached to mental illness, and providing some strategies for dealing with depression and suicide are his main objectives.

  • Mark is a gifted communicator who articulates the gospel in ways that are meaningful and applicable to daily life. He has the unique ability to connect "unchurched" people with the dynamic gospel of Jesus Christ. His passion for Jesus and desire to lead others to Christ are evident when he speaks.
