Mark Hamby
Mark Hamby (M.S., M.Div., Th.M., D. Min. cand.) is founder and president of Lamplighter Ministries. Mark oversees five branches of this ministry: Lamplighter Publishing, Lamplighter Theatre, Lamplighter Guild, Lamplighter Life-Transforming Seminars and Lamplighter Moments Daily Radio Broadcast. He lives in Northeastern Pennsylvania with his wife, Debbie. They have been married for 33 years and have three adult children who were homeschooled.

If you have ever heard Mark speak, you know that he loves to tell stories! If you have ever heard Mark on the radio, you have heard his passion for God and His Word. Interviewed on numerous national programs, including Family Life Today with Dennis Rainey, Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and Moody Bible Network’s Prime Time America with Greg Wheatley, Mark shares the miracle story of how Lamplighter was birthed and how Lamplighter stories have had a redemptive influence around the world. God has opened—and continues to open—great and effectual doors for the spread of His gospel. What Mark is most passionate about is the Lamplighter Guild—a unique educational model which follows a rare principle of the early Renaissance masters called “Agon.” After finding this principle in Scripture, Mark has combined Renaissance training with Scriptural principles that has proven to motivate one toward the pursuit of master skills.
