To Support The Faith At Home MovementIn February of 2009 my wife and I felt led by God to give up our position as the Sr. Pastor of Ventura Missionary Church to become full-time missionaries to the Faith@Home movement. Let me beperfectly clear, this is God’s movement not ours therefore, as missionaries, we go wherever God calls and leads us to spread the Faith@Home vision with individuals, parents, pastors and other church leaders. Yet in order to do this we rely on the Lord to provide the financial support we need through individual gifts and donations. If you would like to support us as missionaries for the Faith@Home movement simply make your tax deductible gifts to: MCWD Memo – For Faith At Home 484 E. Los Angeles Ave., Suite #228 Moorpark, CA 93021Every gift is appreciated and will be used to spread the Faith@Home message to individuals, parents and church leaders all over the world! ©2007 Mark A.
