About Me

I believe that a Great God has great purposes for your life!  My goal is to help you know and live all of those unique purposes, which is the greatest life possible.  I’ve been a campus ministry director, a missionary, church planter, and pastor of spiritual growth and groups at a couple of mega-churches.  Now, through books, courses, coaching, and speaking I’m focused on helping as many people as possible discover and do God’s plans and purposes.



A Great God has Great Purposes and Plans for Your Life!  My goal is to help you know them, experience them, and do them. 

Jesus made it clear that He came to change things.  He said the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy but He came so that all of us could have abundant life; life to the full, life that overflows (John 10:10).  God’s purposes and plans for us are much better, greater, and fulfilling than anything we could ever come up with on our own.

Equipping busy, active, working people to live the greatest lives possible…a life knowing and fulfilling God’s purposes.

My name is Mark Furlong.  I have been a devoted Jesus follower for over four decades.  In those decades I’ve had the privilege of leading university ministries, church planting and pastoring in Germany for eleven years, church planting and pastoring in the U.S., pastor of spiritual development and small groups at a Mega-church, and empowering regular people to overcome the barriers to living God’s plans.

I now write books, develop courses and coaching programs, coach motivated but imperfect people, and help leaders reach and disciple more people through groups.

It has to be DOABLE!

Because you don’t live at church or have hours and hours of free time to read, study, and pray I work hard at putting together the best materials in short, doable segments.  My books are short and easy to read as I keep the focus pretty specific.  The courses and audio programs I offer are broken into 15-25 minute segments so you can listen to them on your way to work, while working out, or taking a walk.

If you are the type of person who wants to live the greatest life possible, you believe God has purposes and plans for your life and you really do want to fulfill them, then please take some time and look around.  I regularly post articles, new courses, and books so you can experience and do what our loving Father had in mind when He created you.
