Marcus impacted many people in his short life. At his celebration of life, Alex Hall, who was Marcus’ youth pastor for 8 years, shared a number of stories about youth who Marcus brought to Christ or were part of the reason they became believers. Others, young and old, shared story after story of what Marcus had meant to them. It was obvious God had used Marcus to impact eternity. p4:13 Ministries was started to continue that mission.

Here is what people have had to say about Marcus and/or p4:13 Ministries.

During our Inaugural Dinner & Auction on November 11, 2016 this video was shared.  In the video youth, a parent and a school administrator share how p4:13 has impacted their life and those of their children or students.

As Marcus’ youth pastor, Alex was a big influence on Marcus and the man he became.  Here is the sermon that he closed the celebration of life with. This is a passionate and personal message focused on knowing Christ.

Marcus lived one heck of a life man. Marcus did things the right way and lived to the fullest. I know we didn’t know each other for many years, but we didn’t need many years to become family. Sometimes we were best friends, sometimes we wanted to rip each others throats out and occasionally we bickered just cuz we could.

I remember the day Marcus signed his letter of intent for Midland. It was one of the happiest days of my life seeing the smile on his face and his parents faces as they sat next to Coach Bischel and signed the form. I will never forget that.

Marcus always brought out the best in people, no matter who it was or what situation. He influenced so many people its truly incredible.   I have no doubt that Chris and Diana, through p4:13 will continue his legacy.
