It's been a long, long time since we have had this much fun. Coming soon to your city: whether it's a church plant, a new way to develop leaders, or how you transform your business into ministry - it's a lifestyle, a conspiracy and a revolution. I will keep you posted: live and lead by the Spirit! We spend a lot of our time doing good things for others but are not focused on the real personal ministry that it truly is. We become focused on the task or outcome and lose sight of the soul the Lord has put in front of us to help. Advocate is church through our own personal ministry! More info coming soon!!! Got Questions? email me! PastorMarksMail@gmail.com

Save the Family


Save the Family Foundation of Arizona offers a variety of programs designed to empower families to conquer homelessness and achieve life-long independence. Through targeted services families at Save the Family end the damaging effects of family homelessness by: improving their education and employment opportunities, accessing safe, permanent housing, and building family competencies. Early on, Save the Family recognized that families need more than safe housing to conquer homelessness. They also need skills and confidence to lead productive, self-sufficient lives. Today, we offer an array of programs for adults, youth, and children, including: parenting skills, personal development classes, and support for victims of domestic violence career development, literacy support, and financial education dental, vision, and legal services tutoring, after-school classes, and camps and activities for youth.

Family Promise

Family Promise has a goal to help families who are homeless and jobless to get back on their feet and be whole again. Family Promise is a true nonprofit, faith based organization that neither needs nor takes government assistance. There are over 180 chapters in the United States.  http://familypromiseaz.org/ There are approximately 5,000 folks in Maricopa County who are homeless families. The average homeless family is a single mom with 3 children under the age of 10. They are not like the homeless we see on the streets or like in the movies. These folks look like us. The kids attend the Kyrene, Tempe, and Chandler school districts. The families have usually lost a job due to the chaotic economy and over time have lost their homes. They stay with friends and relatives as long as they can but eventually God intervenes with love and points them to Family Promise!
