Mark Gorman was raised in a church environment, the son of Pastors Marvin &
Virginia Gorman. At age 5 Mark began singing in church with his older brother
and younger sister. Their trio has recorded five albums, and Mark has recorded 7
solo singing albums.
Mark preached his first sermon at age 17, and entered full time evangelistic
ministry at age 19. Mentored by his father, Mark began seeing miracles in his
services at an early age, as he learned to flow in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
In 1980, at age 22, Mark spoke internationally for the first time, when he was
invited to preach in the nation of Australia. On that visit, he spoke in many of
Australia's largest churches, and was invited to return for ministry the
following year. Since that time, he has ministered in Australia on more than 15
Upon returning from Australia in 1980, Mark married Gina Capdeboscq, who he had
known for 7 years, since meeting her at his home church in New Orleans, where
his father pastored. Mark & Gina’s first child, Kenneth, was born in 1983. And
in 1987, their second child, Sharah, was born.
For several years, Gina home schooled their children, so the family could travel
together in ministry.
In 1992 Mark began speaking in business conventions in the United States and
other countries as a motivational speaker. This gave him the opportunity to
speak into the lives of thousands of business people, through these unique
opportunities to carry the gospel message outside the church walls.
Nearly 170,000 people have come forward to accept Christ in business functions
where Mark has spoken. In addition to the United States, Canada & Mexico, Mark
has also had opportunity to speak in Africa, Europe, England, Wales, Israel,
Singapore, Venezuela, Australia and New Zealand.
Mark’s teachings have been used by departments of Ford Motor Company, Campbell’s
Soup, Coca Cola, Office Depot and many other large corporations. Although these
are motivational presentations, all the teaching is Bible-based. Mark makes no
apologies for the Bible content in his business presentations, and tells his
audience that the Bible is the greatest success book ever written.
After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Mark & Gina moved to Franklin, TN, a suburb of
Nashville. They lived there until 2013, when they returned to New Orleans to
start a church, Grace Christian Center of New Orleans, where they now pastor,
along with Mark’s parents, Dr. & Mrs. Marvin Gorman, who serve as the Spiritual
Covering to the church.
