Mark is passionate about designing worship events and spaces that enable people, inside and outside the church, to engage with the Trinitarian community of God in creative, life-giving, formative and transformative ways. Dissatisfied with much of the worship he was responsible for week by week in churches he pastored, Mark developed the model of worship curator for the design of worship events.
He has written extensively, curated worship events, and led seminars in churches, institutions, conferences and festivals around the world on the integration of the arts, faith, and justice using the worship curation approach. He currently curates and pastors a weekly worship event, Rhythms of Grace, focused on spiritual formation, in Newmarket, Auckland.
Mark will be curating an interactive prayer space at the Conference, called “Linger with Intent”.
