The fivefold ministry was commissioned by Jesus and works within the local church, which is the training ground for ministry. These ministers – apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers- are coaches who equip and train God’s people in releasing His power for works of service. DOVE Canada recognizes and recommends the following fivefold ministers to train, mentor and release the believers in the Body of Christ.

Mark is an encourager, known for his intimacy with the Lord. He has a heart for evangelism. He operates in the prophetic and healing gifts. The Lord has given him many stories to share with others to encourage them. In 2008 the Lord gave Mark a word through a friend; “if you want Quebec it’s yours for the taking”. At the time he was a resident of Keswick, Ontario, longing to see revival there.
In 2011 he visited family in Sherbrooke, Quebec and attended a teaching by a visiting pastor. During the teaching, this man whom he had never met began to prophesy over him that the Lord was going to re-locate him. Within a matter of weeks he left his life in Ontario and moved to Quebec. Mark had a keen interest in the global prayer movement and was delighted to discover a house of prayer in Sherbrooke. He soon became a full time missionary at the Quebec House of Prayer and now leads The Garden Gate house church in Sherbrooke.
