Champaign Banquet 2021


Mark Schultz, Speaker

Many artists talk about chasing their dreams but for Christian artist Mark Schultz it’s never been about the chase. Instead, it’s about following God’s call. It has led to what looks like an artist’s dream: 2 million records sold to date, ten No. 1 single, a Dove Award, as well as multiple nominations. Mark and his wife Kate have 3 children. When they were blessed with their last 2 children it was a full-circle moment for Mark, who is adopted. Now being on the parental side of adoption, Schultz says he views being adopted by his parents and by God in a totally different way! Join us for an evening of stories and songs that will touch your heart and leave you blessed!
