Mark Miller

Board Member of Nationstrategy and Kingdom Business Coach

Mark is a kingdom business coach. He works with business leaders to expand God’s Kingdom through their businesses. He does this through a ministry called Truth at Work and executive coaching/mentoring.

Mark’s coaching and mentoring creates environments where the Spirit of God and the Word of God are engaged to expand our view of who God is in our lives. We then apply this growing identity to our business’ for God’s purposes. These environments are based on the concept of Listening to God with Friends.

The marketplace creates influence through the exchange of money. That influence can be used for God’s purposes or man’s purposes. As our identity in Him grows we are better able to use that influence to love radically in the many difficult situations business uniquely presents. As we love radically God’s Kingdom expands and people are attracted to what they experience.
