Please consider this communication a letter of reference for Mark Grawehr. For the last few years I have had the privilege of getting to know Mark and working with him at his church. I have been in his home on more than one occasion and gotten to know his wife and daughters as well.

In working with Mark I have played the part of church consultant to the church and a mentor/coach to Mark. Mark has worked in a church that has been in major conflict for a long period of time. I have watched him and coached him throughout this process. He has handled well several very delicate situations. He has remained consistent in his ministry to all congregants no matter which side people fell on the issues. He has maintained integrity and consistently given people the benefit of the doubt. He has provided faithful, godly leadership and in spite of this has experienced some unfair criticism. Through it all I watched him grow in his faith as well as ministry skills. In my opinion Mark is more than ready to expand his ministry further as God so leads.

In addition, I have watched Mark balance the demands of a difficult ministry, seminary education and family life. His character remained above reproach throughout every situation. He is a godly, growing Christian man and leads well a wonderful family. I am pleased to write this letter of reference for Mark as he seeks God’s will in expanding his kingdom influence. Please understand if I had a position open on my church staff that fit Mark’s gifts I would not be writing this letter because I would hire him without hesitation.

Please feel free to contact me if I can provide further insight.

Being a Christian in the business world today certainly isn’t an easy task and Mark has been a great help advising me on how to stay the Godly course. His thoughtful, analytical and prayerful approach to coaching me on tricky situations has been both challenging and effective. Mark is excellent at showing how to apply Biblical principals to business circumstances enabling me to steer through many obstacles in a God honoring way.

Scott and Mark have served together on the elder board at Grace Fellowship Church for many years and through two church splits. The board had to seek the Lord and make very hard decisions. Mark’s leadership proved strong as he sought the Lord for His will, sacrificing much of his time, talents, and finances to help the church survive. Over the years of working and praying together, Mark became a mentor to Scott, challenging and discipling him, helping him to become the godly man he is today.

We see Mark as man of wisdom, not impulsive, but thinking and praying through every situation. He does not waiver and will not compromise his faith, being of man of strong convictions and standards. He always chooses godliness rather than the easiest way to resolve problems. He has been a pillar in our church even when he faced personal opposition. He is an excellent steward of what God has given him – his time, his money, his gifts, and his family. He has blessed our family and church as a shepherd and teacher caring, praying, preaching, working, and ministering to us.

I appreciate that Mark is able to bring his corporate experience to bear on the advancement of Christ’s kingdom. As an executive and a leader, he has great skill in working with teams of individuals. He commits to working with his employees to achieve the highest results in any goal or task. Again, coupling his passion for God and his corporate background, Mark has demonstrated unique leadership qualities.

Should you be considering Mark in your church or organization, I would recommend him to you. You would not be disappointed in working with Mark Grawehr whether it’s in missions, ministry, or corporate impact. Thank you for considering this specially gifted brother in Christ.

Yours in Christ’s love,

Mark Grawehr is an unusually gifted leader. First, seen in the business world where he formed a very successful engineering and construction corporation which he has now sold, also in my many meetings with the leadership team at his church he utilizes his excellent mind to make significant contributions to discussions. He also is a hard worker in finishing tasks assigned to him.

I can highly recommend him to any organization as a man of impeccable integrity and leadership qualities that will be a blessing wherever he is called to serve.

Sincerely in Christ,

I plan on using ” Such Precious Clay” as required reading for my Psychology & Theology class at the Alliance Graduate School of Counseling. Mark Grawehr’s text is a valuable resource for students, as they attempt to formulate their own Theology of Suffering.”

I seemed to have turned December into Pastor Appreciation month and I apologize for the lateness of this message. Observing you perform the tasks at Grace to which God has called you has been a blessing and encouragement to me. God has truly blessed you with the ability to teach and connect with your congregation.

Your sincerity and openness of heart is beautifully evident and I thank you for keeping your life close by your Savior’s side. The compassion and empathy you show toward your brothers and sisters in Christ is proof of the Holy Spirit living in you. Allowing Him dominion over your life is an inspiration as well as a model for all.

Mark, thank you so much for the patience and concern you have shown me. I truly feel that the Lord is watching over me through you, His servant. May the Lord continue to bless you with your humble and demonstrative attitude and heart inclination to please Him.

God richly bless you and your sweet family.

Sincerely in Him,
