Barry Hines One on One

brought relevant insight to us through years of experience as well as present day application of achieving financial success through spiritual growth and vision casting. Mark bought a rich background of ministry experience along with years of successfully helping Christian ministries raise funds for capital projects.  His desire to better personalize the engagement that each ministry receives from their stewardship partner led him to begin The Charis Group.  With creative “outside the box” thinking Mark has helped scores of ministries achieve maximum financial and spiritual results.

i3 Seminars are held each Spring and Fall at churches who partnered with The McKnight Group and are successful reaching their community.  Fall seminar locations will be announced soon!
