Bonus Resource

Mark Moore

Mark Moore Road Trip Video Collection ($97)

Dr. Mark Moore is a national CIY speaker, famed Ozark Christian College professor, and now teaching pastor at Christ’s Church of the Valley, in Phoenix. If you know Mark, you know he’s extremely wise and extremely real. His time is also limited. He had an open day, so we packed up our car, and did a 20-hour road trip and sat down with him with our flip cam to get unfiltered, practical wisdom for anyone leading a Children’s or Student Ministry. What we ended up with were 12 videos that you simply can’t afford not to watch.

This includes 12 videos in mp4 format, and includes Mark’s groundbreaking session on How to Really Lead an Effective Mission Trip. This session is worth the prize of this entire bundle 10x over.
