Our Story

40 Years of Marriage

We’re Mark and Deborah Griffo, proud parents of four children (two sons and two daughters), and “Mimi and Papa” to nine fantastic grandkids! 

We believe it’s entirely possible to build strong marriages and families. We’re passionate about giving people practical kingdom tools that will empower them to intentionally build a thriving family and leave a legacy that will impact regions for generations to come.

We are fifth-generation pastors and have been in full-time ministry for the last 40 years.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

“Mark & Deborah Griffo are family builders. These two have built a beautiful example of what family lives like. I’d consider these two some of the most encouraging people I’ve ever known.

"After 40 years of marriage Mark and Deborah love each other like newlyweds, and their example, tremendous gifts of encouragement, positivity, and wisdom in relationships are a blessing for all those that are privileged enough to know and to see them minister. Their programs for the family, and for younger people will enrich your lives greatly. I am honored to call them friends. "

Mark and Deborah Griffo carry what the whole world needs: It's a warm kinda family feeling. It embraces you and convinces you that you are loved to the enth degree and when it comes to their own family: you are in. Each time I hear of how the Lord is using them and their children and grandchildren, I say to myself, "That's my family!" Mark and Deborah are a father and mother to many nations. They not only herald God's message of restoring marriages and families, but they are the message. As the family goes so goes the nations. This is the moment they were born for and the King is calling for them, the King is calling.
