being proactive rather than reactive.

Working with young people since 1979, Mark's desire is for youth ministry to be effective no matter what size of group you have.  From consulting and coaching to training and speaking, Mark can help.

A mission trip experience should impact the individual, the location, and the local church in a positive way.  We have been planning, leading, and resourcing teams since 1984. Some of our locations for 2016:  El Salvador, Spain,Spokane, Oroville, and Oak Harbor WA.
