My Story, My Desire, and My Resume

I have pastored churches from Kansas to Missouri to New Jersey to Pennsylvania, DC, and Maryland, from where I retired from organizational oversight July 1, 2022. Yet, after 46+ years, I am fully engaged in Christian ministry via Mark McCleary Ministries by means of congregational and community education, gift discovery and implementation. My VISION, MISSION statements, respectively, are: “To be recognized as a good pastor by my congregants and a helpful and accessible chaplain to their various communities,” and “To be a role of Christian values to inspire positive lifestyle transformation in others.”

I am wiser today than when I first started ministry in 1974. God has gifted me with a
wealth of skills for helping individuals and groups improve their God-given talents. This candid confession expresses my desire to be “glocal”—have local impact with global outreach. There are many, unchurched and “churched” (inactive or lethargic) people who need mentoring and assistance as they pilgrimage in time and space and want to live productively and meaningfully in this present world toward eternity.

My STORY, DESIRE, and RESUME can be realized in you supporting and participating
3MMM, Inc. as your opportunity to learn Bible-based values and principles that help you discover, design, and deploy your God-given gifts to His glory, and yours and others edification.

empower you to hear God say to you, “Well done!” Until we meet in person, stay
FATP—Faithful, Available, Teachable, and Productive!
