What others have experienced with us...
I can't say enough about Mark Mattingly. He has been a huge help to both our church and me personally, as the Senior Pastor. I have observed him raise the level of our worship both musically and spiritually. He is spiritually mature and an extremely talented vocalist and keyboardist. I have watched him use his many years of experience to become a respected leader at our church, not only to our new believers but also to our seasoned Christians. He also puts forth the time and effort to personally work on developing others in becoming leaders within our church.
Mark understands that our worship team's vision must follow my vision for the church as the Senior Pastor. In fulfilling this, he supports and provides input to me, as appropriate. He never accepts mediocrity as a solution and challenges everyone around him to become the best they can be for Christ.
His greatest contribution has been to me. He is a faithful voice to speak the truth to me, in love. He has a firm grasp on my vision for the church and has been a great influence on keeping me on track. He understands when to be silent and when to speak his mind. What a great asset to me and to our church.
If I had the chance to work with him again, I would do it in a heartbeat. I would recommend him to any church looking to improve their worship experience.

Our worship team has been in a time of transition between directors. Mark gave a Saturday retreat for them, which included teaching and coaching. When it was over, the team clamored for more - We need at least three more workshops, said one musician. Please bring Mark back.

It is my great pleasure to insist that you add Mark to your Ministry Team as your Worship and Ministry Consultant! Mark joined my Ministry Team at ClearPoint Church at one of the most strategic seasons in the life of our new start congregation. We were only two plus years old when the Lord led us to His capable servant, Mark. It was through his consulting ministry with ClearPoint that we were able to witness the deepened commitment of our Worship Team members in cultivating their personal love relationships with Christ which is the foundation for all effective worship leadership.
Mark also inspired community building among our team members that brought a small group leader to the surface and knitted our Team together in cell life at ClearPoint. God continues to bear His fruit in the lives of these dear people on mission for Christ! Marks heart for communicating the Gospel is obvious and infectious! He knows how to partner with a Senior Pastor to craft a weekly worship experience that is designed to flow the theme of the Celebration throughout the entirety of the service. Mark is more than capable as a vocalist and congregational worship leader. He understands the spiritual dynamics of communicating the life of Christ through each musical selection, and he has the voice, the skill and the joy of the Spirit as he ministers.
If you are anxious to train your Team to grow into the demanding, yet satisfying roles of worship leadership, Mark needs to be added to your team! You will benefit from the Workshops and Seminars that he has designed (and teaches quite effectively!) for those who stand on the front lines of leading your weekly worship celebration. You will be blessed by your ministry partner who understands the technical as well as the spiritual elements of making worship central AND meaningful to your congregation. I found Mark to be a trusted friend and confidant. He offered me perspectives and insights that I simply needed to know as Senior Pastor. He shared my heart and my vision, and strengthened my weaknesses. In the weeks that Mark served ClearPoint as our Worship Consultant, I was blessed with a trusted and reliable partner in ministry. If you are in need of a gifted, mature, vibrant, Christ centered and Biblically sound partner for short term ministry and consulting contact Mark Mattingly TODAY!

I want to thoroughly recommend Mark Mattingly to consult with your church in its quest to worship the Lord. Mark is an exceptional young man with a heart of commitment to the Lord and the local church. Mark has an understanding of the pastor's desire to see his church more committed to experiencing worship through music. He is willing to take time to see where your church is at in the area of music and then respond as to not offend those who are serving in that area, whether volunteer or paid staff. He is a gifted musician and will be a positive influence with those he works with in the local church setting. I thank you for the opportunity to share my thoughts on Mark, and would readily use Mark in my church setting again.
