Marc joined the board of Fathers in the Field in 2011 after being introduced to the ministry through Founder John Smithbaker, through their mutual work in the hunting industry. Marc was compelled to serve after John shared with him the magnitude of the fatherless problem in our country.
For the avid hunter, life used to be about trophies, pushing his limits and stockpiling worldly accomplishments, but when Marc turned 50, his life took a turn. He realized how fast life was passing by and how little the things he held in such high regard mattered in the end.
Marc’s involvement in Fathers in the Field is helping him pursue “trophies” with eternal value. Marc understands how deep the wounds from abandonment can be by watching his wife deal with the emotional scars of growing up without a father. Through his wife’s experience, he’s witnessed the damage of fatherlessness and the healing that can come by the grace of God.
