What Others Have Said

  • 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.
    Josh Hunter, Campus Life Mentor, Great Lakes Christian Secondary School
  • Mark truly has carved out a niche when it comes to public speaking and overall communication. He’s harnessed the rare ability to describe complex emotions in ways that are accessible to any audience, creating a unique credibility and humanness that many communicators lose. His relaxed but engaging demeanour earns him the platform to flesh out complex theological topics in ways that remain distinctive, concise, and surprisingly palatable. He uses real life experiences and emotions to open theological dialogues that are interesting and carry life application. Mark seeks to deepen people’s understanding of the greatness of God, our place in His story, and the difference a relationship with God makes.
    Adam Goudreault, Youth Pastor
  • 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.
    Matt Ritchie, Teacher, Preston High School
  • 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.
    Laurie Baulcomb, Teacher, Preston High School
  • 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.
