Ministry Update: How Passion Feeds Activity

Of late, many have asked what’s going on with the ministry. Following is an update, indicative of how passion feeds so much activity.

You are one of several thousand on our email list. Our open rate, week after week, is above average. As such, we want to personally thank you for your participation in our ministry. I say “we” instead of “I” because it takes more than me to do this. Mary Kate (MK) Monin is my editor, videographer, and creative designer. In other words, MK makes our stuff look really good. Cyndi, my wife, is not only my best friend and biggest supporter, but closest adviser. I’m always bouncing ideas off of her, most often (should always in hindsight) heeding her advice. So, thank you, thank you, thank you…to them and you!!!

Starting on April 25, 2018, the Feast Day of St. Mark the Evangelist, we send out a blog every Wednesday, with the total to date being approximately 120. We literally have never missed a Wednesday, with the entire history available on our website. Although topics are varied, typically what is on my heart and mind for that week, often related to current events, they all tie back to the faith and our loving God.

Although I’m not certain of the exact timing, we started putting out videos (vlogs) every Friday. We’re also active on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

We published a FREE 14-week program, beginning May 6th and ending August 5th. The response we received was overwhelmingly positive. Hope you got a lot out of it…you can revisit any of the lessons through our website link above.

We’ve continued to update the website as things have developed, including our Speaking Page. As you might imagine, I’ve not done many events lately, with my last being a Parish Mission during Lent, just prior to COVID. With several having to be canceled, the next thing on the calendar is a Men’s Retreat in late October. We’ll see.

The thing we’re working on now is an online course we are hoping to launch this coming January. We are playing with the title of…

“Going from Overwhelmed to Fulfilled: God’s Master Plan (and Mark’s lived experience) on how to Eliminate the Stress from Your Life, and experience Peace, Joy, and Purpose”

We’re investing greatly in the project…hopefully it will be well received. Priced very moderately, we’ll have a hardship clause so that those who can’t afford it, can still enjoy the benefits.

Love to hear your thoughts on the title and idea of a course.

Although I have a full-time job, I love spending time on Mark Joseph Ministries. In fact, I’m passionate about it. The reason is three-fold:

  1. My life has been absolutely transformed in understanding the unconditional love and forgiveness of God. As such, I feel like God gave me a gift.
  2. I don’t hear the lessons I’ve learned (my message) delivered anywhere, definitely not consistently, inside or outside the Church
  3. Given how dramatically my life has changed, I am convicted to share the message with as many as possible…which includes YOU!!!

I sincerely hope that you and your family are doing well, especially with the pressures of COVID-19 and the current division within our country. I remind myself regularly…God is GREAT; He’ll get us through this too.

As always, I’m very interested in your thoughts, comments, questions, or concerns. Please feel free to email me at Even reach out with a problem or challenge you’re having. Always happy to try to help!!!

God Bless you on your Path to Peace, Joy, and Fulfillment!!!

Mark Joseph
