Mark Schupbach, Founder and Teaching Leader
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 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), Insight for Living (Dr. Chuck Swindoll), and EvanTell Ministries (Dr. Larry Moyer). He served on the President’s Council at Dallas Theological Seminary for nine years.
With a firm reliance on the Holy Spirit, Mark enjoys exhorting believers to get out of their "comfort zone" and fulfill their purpose. He believes that 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."
Mark has been married to his wife, Marty, since 1969. They have three married daughters and six grandchildren.
