Mark is first and foremost a husband and a father. His greatest joy in life is his wife, Dee, and their two sons, Derek and Parker. He believes God created this great institution called family and considers himself very blessed to have such a wonderful life. His family travels with him when the schedule allows.
Mark accepted the call of the Lord to full time ministry in 1990. He attended Southeastern Bible College as well as off-campus training. Mark began to travel and minister around the country. He has earned his Doctorate of Theology which allows him to scripturally and hermeneutically validate and further communicate revelation from a theological perspective and depth to the scriptures. Mark agrees... the title of degree attached does not invoke nor release the revelation but substantiates the validity of the findings to those that are hungry for truth.
Mark’s heart is for the Lord and to equip the saints for their ministry. His calling is to teach the Church to reveal the goodness of God to the world by revealing the Love of Jesus and not through the common messages of guilt and condemnation. This ministry has been gifted with a unique outlook on the life of the believer due to the Scriptural insight he received from his time in prayer and study. The message of this ministry is the Gospel that Jesus preached. His revelation is neither from books, nor men and women of God from the past, but the revelation is fresh and unfiltered by the opinions of men. Mark teaches and preaches the Full Gospel message of Peace, Grace and Kingdom under an Apostolic anointing. Mark teaches and preaches this Gospel in crusades, conferences and seminars around the world. His heart is for the Body of Christ to be revealed to the world and believes it starts with the building up of the local church.
Mark’s heart is for the believer to rise into their calling and so he instructs them in faith righteousness through the inspiration of the Word. Signs and wonders follow this ministry and the church is edified to assume their position in the earth. This ministry most definitely ministers a NOW message. The message he brings will deliver the captive, heal the broken hearted and shock the religious minded. After 20 years of full time ministry and much study in the Word Mark has concluded, the church doesn’t have a devil problem rather it has a knowledge problem. Therefore his message will bring revelation knowledge and challenge the way we think not only about God but about ourselves as well as our purpose in the light of the finished work of Christ.
If the ministry was to be explained in a few simple words it would have to be described as “mind changing”. That’s the goal of this ministry. Mark believes very simply Jesus came to cleanse the world with His blood sacrifice so that whoever accepted that substitution as their salvation is now the residence of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit on a daily basis helps us renew our minds to think like Christ. In essence, as we change our minds we change our lives.
Mark Shell is being led by the Spirit to help the believer change the world, one thought at a time.
