LifeMark Ministries was founded by Mark Schupbach, a businessman with a desire to use the experience, gifts, and talents he has been given by God to support and equip believers in their faith journey.
Mark's involvement with church and ministry began more than 30 years ago. He has served as an elder and president on three church governing boards in both Wichita, KS, and Dallas, TX. He also was involved in Bible Study Fellowship for almost 20 years, including serving as the Men's Teaching Leader for 9 years. In 2003, Mark founded Next Step Bible Study to encourage participants to seek a deeper, more intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ (additional information is located on the "Next Step" tab at the top of this website). With a firm reliance on the Holy Spirit, Mark enjoys exhorting believers to get out of their "comfort zone" and fulfill their purpose.
Professionally, Mark is the founder of a financial life-planning firm that helps to enable successful families to maximize their resources and minimize stress and conflict to pursue their most important life goals. Clients benefit from his 40 years of financial experience in creative financial problem solving. He is especially adept at helping them draw out their values and prioritizing their objectives. Believing that finances and faith are intertwined, Mark incorporates Biblical principles and values into financial planning and wealth management.
In addition to these activities, Mark is available to speak at your next Church event or retreat. Click here to find out more about having Mark speak to your group.
Mark has been married to his wife Marty since 1969. They have 3 married daughters and 6 grandchildren.
Mark believes his life purpose can be found in Proverbs 1:3
“...to teach people to live disciplined and successful lives, to help them do what is right, just, and fair.”
