About Me

Mark W. Gaither

After a fifteen-year career as an engineer and project manager, I felt the call of God to help build something that will last. So, I earned a Master of Theology degree at Dallas Theological Seminary and joined the ranks of kingdom-builders.

My Resume and list of professional writing credits.

This early career in engineering and project management taught me the art and science of getting things done on time and under budget as a team. My time in marketing and communications helped me cast a clear, compelling vision that motivates others to take action. In both sectors, profit and non-profit, I led teams to integrate technology and workflow processes that people enjoy using and, therefore, achieve greater success together.

While my career journey has been varied, a few qualities remained consistent throughout. I have the ability to view systems and their interconnected details simultaneously. A natural curiosity helps me learn systems and processes quickly, and then re-frame problems to yield unexpected solutions. And I enjoy translating complex projects into manageable, measurable, sequential steps. Most of all, I love doing all of this in community with capable team members.

In seminary, I discovered a love for teaching and writing. After graduation, I served as the director of creative ministries and writer for Insight for Living, the radio ministry of Chuck Swindoll. During this time I also assisted Dr. Swindoll in the completion of several books. I also helped other Christian authors on their writing projects. Past clients include Andy Stanley, Dr. Frank Minirth, Dr. John MacArthur, Dr. John Tolson, and John Eldredge.

In 2008, I wrote Redemptive Divorce to help Christians struggling in dysfunctional or dangerous marriages that are torn apart by the destructive behavior of an unrepentant partner.

I currently serve as the Chief Operating Officer at the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts. Our mission is ensure the accuracy of the New Testament text by resourcing New Testament scholars, training the next generation of textual scholars, and collaborating with like-minded institutions.

While ministry and work are very fulfilling, my greatest joy is my family. My wife, Charissa, and I reside in Frisco, Texas and have four adult children.
