My Purpose Statement:
The purpose of my life is to joyfully live out God’s will
developing and using my gifts
while walking in a personal relationship with God
and building up the people I encounter.





Professional


        If you ask what "work" he does the typical response is "I'm retired from broadcasting." 
        He doesn't see the rest as work... just playing and living out who God remade him to be.


 Since 1983 Dr Mark Schwarzbauer has served as Senior Pastor of Family Worship Center in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin.  Previously he ministered as an associate pastor at Emmanuel Christian Center in Minneapolis and as a Chaplain at United and Children’s Hospitals of St. Paul.  During his pastoral ministry in Sturgeon Bay he also served for a time as PhD on staff at Christian Counseling Ministries in Green Bay.

The Midwest’s largest contemporary Christian radio station 100,000 watt WPFF grew out of Dr Mark’s heart to care for people.  He started WPFF, WRGX (now WLNI) and 10 translator stations.  In 2008 he retired from broadcasting.

 

Dr Mark was a keynote and favorite speaker at National Marriage Encounter.  His message on “Sex and Devotions” has been a best seller.


He is an avid Master Scuba Diver and underwater photographer, guitarist, reader and builder of just about anything.  He still plays as a Registered Nurse, counsels people as Dr Mark, and joyfully serves at Family Worship Center.   If you ask what "work" he does the typical response is "I'm retired from broadcasting."  He doesn't see the rest as work... just playing and living out who God remade him to be.
