Mark Maulding moved his young family from the Atlanta, GA area to found Grace Life International in Charlotte, NC in 1995. He is passionate about helping struggling and spiritually hungry Christians, especially pastors, experience the freedom and joy of God’s grace and our identity in Christ. He leads, writes, preaches, teaches, counsels, and coaches.
Through Mark’s leadership, God has done amazing miracles. His original staff of three has grown to 31, in three locations. They have counseled 4300 hurting people, taught 5500 people in their conferences, certified 500 people in Advanced Discipleship Training, preached to over 200,000 people, ministered in nine countries, and led many to faith in Christ! Grace Life International is also one of the leading voices in America for the grace message. He gives Jesus the glory for it all!

Mark Lives By Faith Financially As A Missionary
Just as others are international missionaries, Mark is a missionary to Christians and churches, helping them live in the freedom of God’s grace and their identity in Christ. As a result, he lives 100% by faith, being supported financially by friends who believe in what God has called him to do.
- Does Mark receive any money from GLI from the counseling he does? No, that money goes to cover the overhead costs of GLI such as leasing office space and administrative staff.
- What exactly does Mark need to raise? He is responsible to raise financial support to cover his salary, housing, medical and retirement.
- If Mark doesn’t have enough financial support for his needs, does GLI or the Board step in and supplement his salary? No. He simply doesn’t get paid in full or at all.
- What happens if Mark gets more financial support than he needs? In almost 30 years of ministry, this has never been a problem. He needs some cushion is his support to cover the months when all of his support does not come in. He needs both monthly and special support gifts.
