Mark Virkler

Mark & Patti Virkler are the directors of Communion With God Ministries, and Christian Leadership University.

Mark began as youth pastor at Avon Wesleyan Church. They founded the church, Pioneer Christian Fellowship, where Mark served as senior pastor for its first five years. Mark worked on several church staffs over the years, including seven years at Full Gospel Tabernacle. They have helped develop three networks of church-centered Bible schools, representing several hundred churches.

Mark's hunger to hear God's voice was rewarded in 1979 when he set the entire year aside to learn to do so. God gave him a breakthrough, which is recorded in the books 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice and Dialogue With God. Mark has traveled worldwide since 1984 teaching the How to Hear God's Voice weekend seminar. God has given him a commission to saturate the world with the message of communion with God.

Mark and Patti hold firmly to two great historical creeds of Orthodox Christianity, the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed. Their ministry is Spirit-filled and interdenominational. They believe fully in the authority and inerrancy of the Bible and in the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit.
