What people are saying about Mark’s speaking

“I have known Mark Brouwer for a number of years and have watched his wise teaching grow over time. He is providing very valuable resources to many men around the country. I am pleased to recommend his teaching to you.”Dr Mark Laaser, Director of Faithful and True Ministries

“Mark Brouwer has been my colleague in pastoral ministry and is my friend.  Now he is based just down the street from where I live and work even though he counsels and teaches people across the nation.  Mark is a person of integrity and courage who not only faced his own personal challenges but brings his experiences and professional expertise to compassionately and effectively help others.”Dr Leith Anderson, president of National Association of Evangelicals, pastor of Wooddale Church

“Mark Brouwer gave a three hour training seminar for church leaders at our recent regional gathering. Mark presented helpful insights. We came away enlightened and encouraged to take the next steps and make use of available resources. Mark can speak from experience as a CRC member, pastor, and recovering person himself. I highly recommend him as a credible resource for your ministry needs.”Pastor Henry Gunnink,  Grace CRC, Inver Grove Heights, MN,  chairman Classis Lake Superior, March 2011.

“Mark spoke at our church at both our adult forum and our morning services. Both were handled very well. He was outstanding in his excellent preparation, sensitivity to his audience and personal authenticity. I would highly recommend him for any event.
Pastor Eric Hulstrand, Senior Pastor, Trinity Lutheran Church of Minnehaha Falls

“What a tremendous resource for Pastors you are! I want to thank you and your wife for leading our annual Pastor/wife retreat. It was great. As we drove home, my wife and I both said we wished we would have known of such problems and resources to help correct the problems when we began our ministry. Your teaching was a great warning. I have received responses from a few of our attendees and they all felt the meetings were very worthwhile. Thanks for your work and ministry.”Rev. Frank Pott, Regional Pastor to pastors in Northeastern Iowa and Minnesota

“Mark brings credibility and knowledge about his subject. He talks about his experiences – in leadership and life – with a straightforward courage that is admirable. He put us at ease while talking about very difficult subjects, diffusing our discomfort with humor and honesty.”Pastor Kyle Haak, pastor of Wheaton Christian Reformed Church, Wheaton, IL

“Thank you for your openness, wisdom, and honesty. I think you could tell from the attentiveness of the students and the many questions they asked that what you said really hit home for them. I hope to have you back for future classes at the seminary.”Dr. Bob Albers, professor at Luther Seminary

“Thank you so much for coming out to talk to our group. I had some great feed back from the men I talked to about what you had to say.  I also had an amazing conversation with one of our guys because of what you shared. You blessed us.” – Jesse S, program coordinator, Eaglebrook Church, White Bear Lake, MN
