Mark's passion in ministry is to help people encounter God genuinely and deeply by opening themselves more fully to God's work and God's Word. He is particularly eager to see people released from the chains of both cynicism (the Sadducees of Jesus' day) and legalism (the Pharisees of Jesus' day) into faith and freedom in Jesus Christ.
