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. I started feeling a desire in my heart to fulfill the need of a pastor. Up to this point in the ministry I have not been seeking to be a pastor. I have had peace with working in my Local Church as a missionary printer and youth director. But, as I prepared to go preach and while I was at Wolverine Baptist, I felt God pulling on my heart for the Church family, and the need they had of a pastor. 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.
On February 23, 2018 God answered our prayers and gave us a baby girl from our first pregnancy in 17 years of marriage! Hannah Rose Chartier has been a blessing and a joy as we serve the Lord in this great work.
