Mark's Ministry

I’ve experienced this in my own life. I see it among my family and friends. We’re running ourselves to death, always searching for more because we think this is the only way to maintain a toe-hold in the world. Because we’re trying to create our own fulfillment, we end up

    • surrounding ourselves with superficial relationships; not truly investing in one another
    • setting unrealistic goals
    • working exhausting schedules
  • trying to fill the void with all sorts of things we don’t need

I’ve been incredibly overwhelmed in my own scramble for success and fulfillment. I know what it’s like to feel trapped beneath the burdens, to try to fill the infinite God sized hole in the center of my chest. I’ve suffered extreme loss and come to the brink of despair.

I made the transition and so can you. There’s nothing special about me. Coming out on the other side of some significant tragedy, I learned lessons that changed my life forever. I’m no longer overwhelmed. I was blessed to have found the path to peace, joy, and fulfillment that escape so many.

Being overwhelmed afflicts just about everyone in our fast-paced world. Whether married or single, with kids or not, empty nesters,
beginning or advanced in your career, a student or retired, wildly successful or just getting by, we all know what it’s like to feel

Not only do things move very fast in today’s world, but we’re always connected. There’s no downtime. We have more things to do
and less time to do them. Often stressed with the day’s tasks, in the background we have concerns over:

  • our careers
  • our compensation
  • the needs of our families
  • funding of college
  • planning for retirement
  • paying for houses, cars, vacations
  • the kids’ activities or our hobbies
  • how to maintain a standard of living or get ahead

There’s lots of pressure, lots of stress, and little time to relax. You may be dissatisfied and discouraged. You wonder what your life’s
purpose is, what life is really supposed to be about. You wonder if anyone else feels this way. There’s no end in sight. There’s nothing
that you’ve found to correct for the chaos. You aren’t happy, and certainly aren’t fulfilled in your life.

The choice is up to you. Like anything that’s worth achieving, it will take work and some changes, but I promise you…it will be worth it. It will be a journey. You’ll learn why you are the way you are and how to improve things.

Moving past overwhelmed doesn’t mean all of your problems will disappear. But as you implement the changes in your life, I promise that you will be able to handle problems in a way that you’ve never thought possible.

You’ll experience a freedom that you’ve only dreamed of, a conviction to your life’s purpose, and the overwhelming (no pun intended) sense that you are made for greatness.

Find your path to Peace, Joy, and Fulfillment. The rewards will be life-changing.

It’s never too late to start being the person you want to be, the person God designed you to be.

About Mark

I had a great upbringing, the oldest of four boys to two loving parents. Married right after college, we had three kids in six years. I bought a business at 27 and grew it moderately over 10 years before hitting the proverbial homerun.

Although things looked good from the outside, I was never satisfied. I was chasing the American dream. I was incapable of living in the moment, always pushing for more, striving for what I hadn’t already achieved. The pace crowded out the peace.

I then suffered significant tragedy, where I was literally forced to my knees, in need of real help. Quite unexpectedly in March, 2006, I experienced conversion, really feeling the unconditional love of God for the first time in my life. My journey began there.

Having become passionate about my faith, I felt a real call to leave the commercial world to go to work for the Catholic Church, joining Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2012. Today I work as the Vice President of Outreach and Evangelization at the University, where I am part of a team that gets to evangelize, educate, and empower, all by God’s grace, tens of thousands every year.

Given what I’ve learned and how the message resonates with so many, all by the grace of God, I’ve become committed to helping others.

I’ve written a book, which was published in August, 2018 by Our Sunday Visitor, and launched this web site. I blog, speak, and work with people who are overwhelmed by life to understand that they are made for greatness, coaching them through the process that leads to peace, joy, and fulfillment.

I am married to my best friend, Cyndi, and have three adult children, two son-in-laws, one  daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters. Cyndi and I live outside of Pittsburgh, PA., where our passions are faith, family, health, and fitness.

I understand the challenge of finding the right speaker to give the right talk. In my role as Executive Director of the Steubenville Conference Office of Franciscan University, I am responsible for over 30 events per year, serving 60,000 guests, many of whom come back year after year.

Having joined the Conference Office at the University 6 years ago, I quickly realized that the success of any event, whether a conference, a retreat, or an individual talk, comes down to the quality of the speakers.

The more compelling the presentation and the speaker, the more compelling the message and more successful the event.

My hope is that this page will make it easy for you to get the information you need to make the best decision possible for your event and those who attend.

Thank you for stopping by my Speaking Page. And thank you for considering me for your event.

God Bless, Peace,
