A Kingdom Mischief – Maker:

proclaiming the gospel in as many places as possible

Charlie Marq speaks God’s Word with contagious joy and urgency, sharing captivating God stories, as he passionately challenges thousands every year to surrender their lives to Jesus and engage His every day, everywhere mission.

Charlie has always had a knack for mischief and adventure. Growing up, he often found himself taking on the role of pranking mastermind, rallying the troops for trouble. Yet when Jesus gripped his life, everything changed. 

His insatiable craving for mischievous ventures never left. Instead, it transformed into a passion for kingdom mischief-making: proclaiming the gospel in as many places as possible—here, there, and everywhere—even if it’s prohibited or deemed “too dangerous.”

In addition to venturing into remote mission fields, Charlie travels from place to place, preaching everywhere for all sorts of crowds and events. His ministry has brought thousands to Jesus and reached even more across the nation and around the globe – as ordinary, every day people have been empowered to spiritually multiply!

About Charlie

Charlie is passionate about seeing the kingdom of God advanced among the unreached, unengaged, and frontier regions of the world. His heartbeat is “to preach the gospel where Christ is not known” (Romans 15:20). So Charlie has put his feet to his faith, traveling extensively to unreached people groups across the globe.

When not traveling, Charlie lives in Colorado along with his incredible wife, Dara, and his family. Dara serves as an anointed worship leader and occasionally joins him to lead worship during itinerant speaking events—she is often available to join upon request. Charlie is a former youth pastor, local church leader, graduate of Colorado Christian University, and an Ordained Minister of the Gospel.
