Shepherd's Heart Inc. is a registered non-profit in the state of Michigan. It was founded by Rev. Mark Bonham as a compilation of three and a half decades of experience in working with people to address issues that impact the soul. It is Biblically rooted and Christ centered. Mark has traveled all over the U.S. and to half a dozen countries as a teacher and trainer to develop the church's biggest resource - her people.
Mark is an avid promoter and developer of life-giving community in small groups. He is available to speak and to train people in the principles of effective small group work, leadership development, the dynamics of real marriage and discipleship that impacts the soul.
Mark and Mary Bonham launched Shepherd’s Heart on January 1, 2011, to offer a ministry of care and restoration, as well as train and equip people for this type of ministry. The Bonham’s served for 25 years with the Navigators in campus ministry, a pioneering ministry in Hungary, in community ministry in Kalamazoo and assisting leadership development in the Detroit metroplex. Mark was executive director of Open Hearts Ministry for 10 years, training small group leaders to facilitate “Grace Groups” across the U.S. and 30 countries. Shepherd’s Heart is a convergence of the Bonham’s ministry experience, focusing on “discipleship of the soul”, using counseling, teaching, training, mentoring and small groups to build emotionally and spiritually healthy individuals, marriages, workplaces and ministries.
