Welcome to Kung-Fu for Christ, a Gospel-presentation ministry by
Martial Artist Mark Karrick of Ketchikan, Alaska.
For over 15 years, I have been involved in the ministry of presenting the Gospel through the use of the Martial Arts. I was saved at the age of 21, and graduated from Hyles-Anderson College in Crown Point, Indiana. On April 12, 1983, I answered the called to preach, and was ordained in 2003.
This method of using the Martial Arts has proven to be a unique and creative means of presenting the Gospel to those who would ordinarily never hear. In fact, many who attend the presentations are unchurched and unconcerned about their eternity. My mission is to reach these lost souls with the Gospel and to challenge them to begin a new relationship with the Lord.
The Martial Arts presentation is a vivid example of the truths and disciplines of the Christian Life and how powerful a relationship with God can be. The energy and dynamics of the presentation grips audiences of all backgrounds, religions, races, and ages. I have had the privilege of sharing the Gospel through Martial Arts in a wide variety of settings, from Boys & Girls Clubs, to nursing homes, truck-stop ministries, churches, youth rallies, and even to the deaf and Spanish-speaking communities. From a banquet hall in Illinois to the streets of Chicago, from Michigan to Florida, from Virginia to Alaska, the Gospel has been clearly presented through this ministry. It is an outstanding tool for reaching people from all walks of life, no matter how rich, poor, educated, or unlearned, and presenting to them the reality of what Christ has done for them on Calvary.
Please consider implementing this ministry as part of your next youth rally, school event, conference, or any special occasion where the unchurched or unsaved of your community will be attending. It is a very effective, dynamic way of reaching an audience of any size with the message of salvation. Hundreds have already come to know Christ over the past 15 years through this ministry, and I look forward to seeing what God will do with hundreds more in the years to come.
