About Mark

"I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind, but now I see." 


These beautiful words from the hymn, "Amazing Grace," speak to my life and the transformative power of The Word of God and the saving grace of Jesus Christ.


I was so very lost; I was a sinner who was perishing. While I was a success by the world's standards, I was spiritually bankrupt. I had deceived myself into thinking I was a good person. (Only God is the judge and standard for that.)

But, God, in his patience, love, and mercy kept pursing me. Jesus kept standing at the door of my heart and knocking with abundant grace and forgiveness to freely give me.


As I read the book of Matthew, Jesus revealed himself boldly. That boldness continued as I read across the entire Bible. As I read, I realized my spiritual depravity. I was broken. I needed Jesus.


I confessed my sins and repented. Jesus washed me clean; He wiped away ALL of my sins and my many tears and shame. I am a forever changed man.


God is now my Father; Jesus walks beside me and teaches me; the Holy Spirit dwells inside of me. I have denied myself, taken up my cross, and have followed Jesus completely; I renew that vow daily. 


My sanctification, by the Holy Spirit, continues; as it does for all who submit to the Lord. Fear, anxiety, and depression, which once consumed me, are gone.

I invite you to read my testimony in my letter, "In Error to God's Heir." God has called me to share the Truths that I was once blind to. 


I had great hesitation and feelings of inadequacy to walk into this calling, but the Holy Spirit emboldened and guided me to author the letter, "In Error to God’s Heir," to proclaim biblical truths about same-sex (i.e., homosexual) identity.  In my weakness, He is made strong (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). The only identity that matters is in Christ. I pray you find it, too.


May the Lord use this letter to open the eyes of the blind. May it show that that what matters is the next life because it's forever. 

I am grateful for all who take the time to read, “In Error to God’s Heir.” I encourage you to let the Word of God speak to your heart and mind. Ask God to open your eyes and transform your heart.

Thank Yous

I am eternally grateful to those special people who supported me in my journey, acknowledging my fears and challenges as I turned to Christ and left my past behind. Their faithfulness, love, prayers, and support have been invaluable. Their encouragement to witness and go forth in holy boldness birthed this ministry.


May this evangelistic ministry bring glory to God alone. None to me.


Christ’s Ambassador and Living Epistle,


Mark Richard


P.S. God is amazing. He knew from the very beginning that this is the work that I would do for His Kingdom. Even my name reflects His hand on me from the my beginning. (Psalm 139:13)

Mark = Warrior (of Truth and Grace)

Richard = Strong in Rule (using the Sword of the Spirit to destroy strongholds, arguments, and every lofty opinion raised against the Word of God. I Corinthians 10:4-6)

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare, and not for evil, to give you future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11)
