Curious about who we are and what we believe?
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 serves as the CEO and lay teacher for LifeMark.
Mark's involvement with church and ministry began more than 30 years ago. He taught Bible Study Fellowship in Dallas for nine years, and he founded Next Step Bible Study in 2003, where he currently serves as the teaching leader. In 2013, Mark expanded his ministry involvement with the founding of LIfeMark Ministries, a discipleship ministry that focuses on the practical application of God’s Word in the lives of believers.
He has served as an elder and president on three church governing boards as well as numerous non-profit boards, including: The TurnAround Agenda (Dr. Tony Evans) and Insight for Living (Dr. Chuck Swindoll). In addition, he served on the President’s Council at Dallas Theological Seminary for nine years.
Mark has been married to his wife, Marty, since 1969. They have three married daughters and six grandchildren.
Jennifer has a diverse background in both business and ministry, and she enjoys using her experience to encourage others in their faith journey. As the Executive Director of LifeMark Ministries, she is grateful to God for opportunities to use her gifts and skill sets in a wide variety of projects including the development of Bible study curriculum and online resources as well as the planning of LifeMark ministry events.
In addition to ministry endeavors, Jennifer enjoys capturing the special moments of life as a freelance photographer. She is a die-hard Aggie, enjoys discussing current events, and is passionate about all things sports (especially Aggie football!).
