Time, Talents and Gifts
Mark Bertrang believes that we all have gifts that are meant to be shared. Unfortunately, many people leave their gifts unopened and unused.
You may run into Mark during the Christmas season ringing a Salvation Army kettle bell while singing holiday songs outside a local grocery store; or you may have found Mark giving of his time as a former church lay leader.
Mark has also traveled on multiple high school youth mission trips around the country to lead youth in scraping and painting houses, doing yard work or helping with programs serving disadvantaged communities.
Mark Bertrang has also completed a year-long course to earn the certification as a Stephen Minister, trained to provide distinctive one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times.
A special concern to Mark is the misunderstanding of Mental Illness and how it silently affects the lives of families. He has participated in the National Association of Mental Illness 'family–to–family' education program and has incorporated its message into his practice when dealing with families who have children with special needs.
You may have also seen Mark narrating programs for the Coulee Region Gospel Choir.
We all have talents and gifts," says Mark Bertrang. "It's important we use them."
