Mark and Debbie Hendrickson Family
Mark and Debbie are both PK’s (preacher’s kids). Both were raised in a home where the presence of the Lord was sought after and music had a prominent place in much of the ministry.
They met in 1975, married in 1977, and began leading worship together in Deb’s father’s church in St. Louis where Mike Bickle was the youth pastor. In 1983 Mark joined Mike Bickle and the leadership team at Kansas City Fellowship (KCF) as senior worship leader and associate pastor. Through 1989, they led worship and helped raise up worship teams for the six area churches all related by common leadership.
Between 1989 and 2000 the Hendrickson family lived in the rural community of Richland Center, WI. During that time they pioneered and pastored a church called The Gathering – a regional “watering hole”. “The River” was a strong influence on the ministry – with lots of worship, “soaking” in the presence of the Lord, and prophetic prayer ministry. Many of those attending had been to Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship and loved the free atmosphere of exploring the presence of the Lord.
During those years the Hendrickson children, Markus, Luke, John and Lydia , began learning to sing and play instruments. In 2003, Markus married Allison, a wonderful addition to the family. They have all been an integral part of the DPM ministry. Now, Markus and Allison have their own ministries in Franklin, TN.
Mark and Debbie have pastored and conducted an itinerant worship and speaking ministry for over 30 years. Their style is one of fresh and ‘real’ worship. Mark loves ‘reality worship’, which he describes as using ‘living room language’ and exploring fresh and creative ways of eliciting participation from everyone present. His desire is to activate and engage everyone in a personal ‘getting lost’ in love with Jesus.
Mark and Debbie ministered with their family for nearly 15 years with the seven of them flowing with an ease and anointing that inspired and refreshed many hearts into greater faith for your own family. Families with aspiring musical youth have not be disappointed when attending their meetings. The Hendrickson’s are very musically skilled and versatile in many styles, especially heart songs. Finding and following a seamless worship experience is characteristic of their worship times.
Personal prophetic songs over individuals are not unusual during worship. Tears and fresh heart awakenings are common. People find new encouragement and greater desire to know a more relevant and delightful Jesus.
