Hello, my name is Mark Chartier. I came to the realization of my sin as a young boy, and remember the day that my mother sat down with me and showed me from the Bible how I could have my sins forgiven and not go to hell. In simple faith and the fear of the Lord, I fled from the wrath of God, and trusted in God’s Son to forgive me of my sins through His death, burial and resurrection.
While in my 20’s I had a desire to draw closer to God, and came to Parker Memorial Baptist Church to attend the Lansing Baptist Bible Institute. On June 14th, 2004, God called me to full time service. Over the next few months of seeking God’s will, He led me to work with the Bearing Precious Seed and Local Church Bible Publishers ministries.
I quit my full time job in 2006 and began working for the Lord. About a year into my service, Calvary Publishing was started, and the Lord has led me to be involved in this ministry along with the others. God has given me the ability to operate many different aspects of the ministry here at Parker. I am not necessarily out in the limelight, but I am thankful for whatever the Lord has for me to do.
We appreciate everyone allowing us to print for them through Calvary Publishing. As you may know, I do not make any money off of the printing that I do. I completely rely on love offerings, and monthly support from God’s people. All that I ask from everyone is that you honestly pray and ask God what He would have you to do and give, and I will trust that it is the will of God for my life that you do what He tells you to do.
While visiting to fill the pulpit at Wolverine Baptist Church on December 20th, 2015, the Lord placed a burden on my heart to go and help this Church. After much prayer, seeking God’s will and council with my pastors we came and candidated at WBC. On February 21, 2016 I preached and the WBC voted us to become their pastor. The Lord allowed us to pastor there for almost four years. After much prayer, we knew the Lord was calling us back into full time Bible publishing work. We worked with the Church to bring in a new pastor and his family to take over where we left off.
At the start of 2020, we began deputation and look forward to helping, encouraging and exhorting churches in the area of world-wide missions. We currently work as Missionaries with the Bearing Precious Seed, Local Church Bible Publishers and Calvary Publishing ministries.
After 17 years of marriage, in 2018, God has blessed us with a beautiful baby girl named Hannah Rose Chartier. We truly are thankful to God for all His blessings!
Feel free to contact me with any questions or to have me present the Bearing Precious Seed ministry in your church.
