His Early Years
Mark Richard Lewelling, Th.D. – Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, Author, and lifetime servant of God. Mark grew up the son of a preacher, with his parents being full time pastors with the Assembly of God organization. Mark worked from a young age at anything that was needed in the church.
When Mark was old enough, he became Youth Leader and then Associate Pastor to his father, Ken Lewelling. Eventually he ventured out on his own, and landed under the leadership of Pastor B.H. Clendennen of Victory Temple in Beaumont, TX.
At Victory Temple, Mark served in many capacities of ministry. Mark graduated to a more mature youth leader, followed by a youth counselor. He then went on to lead the adult single’s group. During his time with Pastor Clendennen, he was often called upon to solve problems while continuing to work in various aspects of church functionality.
A few years later, Mark played an instrumental role building Churches, and Bible schools in Russia and Africa. During his travels, he met Reinhard Bonnke. He explained to him the concept of not birthing the lambs to leave for the wolves. Bonnke was so impressed with Mark’s ideas, he flew him to Germany to discuss having Mark set up new churches. His job was to place leaders in positions of authority after the large crusades so the sheep were not left to the wolves. At this time, Mark was a church planter.
After returning to the States, Mark started the “School of Christ” Prison Ministry; a program for ministry in State and Federal Prisons Systems in the Beaumont, TX area. Through School of Christ, Mark ministered in both minimum and maximum security prisons. In recent years, Mark joined forces with Kairos Prison Ministry where he stood as the Ordained Minister.
Mark’s missionary work placed him in many leadership positions such as Crusade Organizer, Bookkeeper, Church planter, Pastor, Teacher, Evangelist, and numerous Ministry of Helps positions. His extensive experience in a wide variety of ministry positions has given him a strong spiritual maturity needed for today.
Currently Mark, along with his wife Heidi, pastor at the Woodlands Forum Church, in the Woodlands, TX. Their non-profit organization, Stone Tablet Ministries, is working to reach people with a deeper understanding of God’s Word through audio teachings, and itinerant travel specializing is “Series” teachings that cover specific topics; which is the basis of their new show; “The Whole Package,” coming soon!
