Marc is the founder of Mantle of Praise Ministries, a ministry concerned with revival and restoring a prophetic edge to the whole body of Christ. Marc ministers in two basic areas; speaking and impartation. The speaking focuses on what the Spirit of God desires to say to the individual church, that particular region, or to the Body of Christ in general. Marc also teaches on themes such as Healing and the Kingdom of God, Prayer, Worship and the Tabernacle of David, Vision and Destiny, the Father Heart of God, and recovery from Spiritual Abuse. Impartation is the releasing by the Spirit of what the Father desires to do in three basic areas:
1. Encouraging and releasing of spiritual gifts
2. The Holy Spirit speaking clearly and directly to peoples hearts about the Father’s compassion and sovereignty
3. Ministering in healing
Marc has served in various forms of church leadership for over 20 years, including teaching, preaching, counseling, evangelism, and church planting.
During the last 26 years, Marc has mainly been working with Mantle of Praise Ministries on an international level functioning in a prophetic “Barnabas ministry” of encouragement. He has ministered in conferences, seminars, and churches in well over 20 countries. He travels between 4 and 5 months a year in Scandinavia, Europe, Africa, the United States, Canada, Mexico, the British Isles, Asia, and Australia. He is used by the Lord in a wide variety of denominations from Lutheran to Baptist and Pentecostal to Anglican. His underlying focus is basically in six areas:
2. The Father heart of God
3. Intimacy with God
4. Unity in the body of Christ
5. Knowing the times and seasons
6. Restoration for the traditional churches
Marc, his wife Kim, their two daughters and son reside in Dayton, Ohio. Marc also functions as an associate pastor with the Vineyard of Dayton in Dayton when he is not on the road. His pastoral responsibilities include preaching at services and conferences, and overseeing prayer, healing teams, and missions. Marc was on staff at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship from 1992 to the spring of 1996.
He is also locally involved with ministry on an ongoing basis with many different churches of a variety of denominations. He is the author of the books “The Elijah Years – a prophetic perspective of the ‘90s” and “The Church of the 3rd Millennium Living in the Spirit and the Power of the Elijah Years” placing the perspective on into the 21st century. He has also written the book “Toxic Churches” which deals with false motivation for ministry and the ensuing entrapments of toxic faith type churches. One of Marc’s latest books titled “Pursuing Open Heavens” deals with the heart cry within each of us to know the glory of God. His most recent book is co-authored with Mark Stibbe, the senior leader of St. Andrew’s Church Chorlewood, England and is called “Healing Today- When the Blind See and the Lame Walk.” It deals with numerous topics related to God’s healing in the 21st century.
