Mark Lowry has been making people laugh, cry and think for nearly 40 years. Singing publicly and recording albums and videos since age eleven, you could say that Mark has done this most of his life.

Mark attended Liberty College (now Liberty University) in Lynchburg, VA, from 1975 to 1980 where he first intended to gain a Business degree. In 1976, Mark felt God was calling him to a music ministry and, when he graduated in 1980 with a Youth degree, he began performing at independent Baptist churches around the country. His first booking agent, Roy Morgan, booked Mark in 43 cities in 41 days. As Mark put it, “This boy could book a pork chop into a synagogue.”

Mark tells how in the early days he would have to fill the gaps between his songs while he was waiting for the little old man in the back of the church to change his soundtracks. “Those few seconds of ‘dead air’ can feel like hours when you’re on stage facing a crowd – so, to fill time, I’d start talking about my life and my testimony. People would laugh… and I finally realized I was on to something.”

And that’s how Mark’s well-known comedy was born. His unique presentations have been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.
