Mark Weimer went to college and graduated from Stanford. After graduation, Mark was exposed to the Gospel and gave his life to the Lord. Later Mark went into the business world in the Silicon Valley. He was the President of Trust Consultants, Inc., and worked with many leading financial institutions including CitiBank, T Rowe Price, New York Life, Chase and Wells Fargo. Later he became the Chairman and CEO of 401kServices.com, working with businesses and stock brokerage firms including Charles Schwab, etc.
Mark decided to utilize the internet to mobilize people around the world to pray. So he helped start www.globalmediaoutreach.com, a non-profit Christian online ministry which focuses on helping people around the world to find Jesus. During his 8 years as CED/President, Mark helped the ministry grow from startup to reaching over 150 million people through 130 websites in all the world’s major trade languages.
During President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns, Mark noticed that the President used social media to generate momentum and garner support. Mark thought that would be a good thing to do to motivate people to pray. “Our country is moving further away from godliness,” says Mark. “We need to call our nation back to God.” So last year Mark decided to focus on the US and started www.newlifeamerica.com. Their goal is to unite millions of Christians in America to pray for our country and each other. Along with the website, Mark says they currently have over 600,000 members on Facebook. Each one of those members has friends so the prayers could potentially reach over 96 million. “We’ve gathered together the main prayer movements in America and connected them in alliance in prayer,” says Mark.
