MARCUS ARTIE WHITWORTH, SR. is a full-time, Ordained Christian Worship Leader/Revivalist, affiliated with the Church of the Nazarene. He is God-called and has held REVIVALS continuously since 1983. He was raised, the son of a Nazarene Pastor- a “PK” (Preacher’s kid).
His Biblical ministry objective is to help facilitate a Holy Spirit led RENEWAL in the Body of Christ where Believers are ENCOURAGED to return to their “1st Love” and regain a greater measure of JOY & PASSION in their WORSHIP of God (lifestyle worship) and SERVICE to others, (including a burden for lost souls, people experiencing pain and loss.)
He utilizes a variety of musical styles and media to convey BIBLE TRUTHS with energy and integrity. He makes it his aim to please and exalt God (King David style). It gives him much pleasure to announce God’s glory and Kingdom coming by the blowing of the Jewish SHOFAR (“the Trumpet of the Lord”).
Marcus makes his home in Henryetta, OK (1 hr. south of Tulsa). His wife, Donna of over 30 years, serves on Staff @ the local Nazarene Church. Their 2 Sons are grown with homes of their own in the OK City area. Marcus & Donna are proud Grand parents of Ella Kate, Remington, and Alexis. To the G-kids they are “Papa & Grammie”.
Marcus serves as Dir. Of the Henryetta Public Skate Park, an all-concrete facility located downtown. He says, “the current generation is NOT the “X Gen…..they are the NEXT Generation. I believe REVIVAL is coming through our YOUTH!
In the mean time, we “Boomers” have to show them how to have a REVIVAL :
1) prayer & fasting towards a RENEWED hunger and zeal for God daily,
2) fresh freedom to praise Him publicly,
3) and a prompt display of obedience in times of response to the Spirit’s leading.
Of late, Marcus is pondering the following statement spoken by Dr. Jack Eyestone, Retired D.S. of the MO Nazarene District:
“What one generation does not EXPERIENCE, the next generation will not BELIEVE!”
