    Working to Fight the Opioid Epidemic I recently had the chance to meet with some of our local team in Hendersonville for the Henderson County Opioid Leadership Forum.

    Mark's Weekly Update E-Newsletter 3-5-18 Honoring Billy Graham Last week, we lost one of America’s greatest teachers, servants, and friends. Reverend Billy Graham passed away at the age of 99. Billy Graham is now seeing our Savior face to face—the same Savior that he introduced so many to over the years. And while he passed away from this earth at the age of 99, I can’t help but think of the biblical parable that meant so much to Reverend Graham in his life—the parable of the 99 sheep, and the ...

    Immigration Update I wanted to give you an update on news surrounding the immigration debate and where we stand in Congress. Right now, unfortunately, the House of Representatives is not acting on immigration, instead choosing the let the Senate go first and try to pass their own bill--and I believe this is the wrong approach.The Senate has already failed to pass any of the four measures they considered. If the House is going to wait for 60 Senators to figure out an immigration bill first, we m... Read more

    Government Shutdown Recap Many of you were probably following the news last week as the government shut down for 3 days. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and a minority of Democrat Senators made the decision to block a spending bill from passing because they wanted a DACA (immigration) deal attached to the bill. Ultimately, that never happened and the government did re-open, but much occurred in between that I’d like to cover. First off, I wanted to make sure to answer a question I received... Read more

    Supporting Israel As you may have read by now, President Donald Trump recently announced that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as the true, undivided Capital of Israel. The United States will also be relocating the US embassy to Jerusalem. There are times throughout the United States' history when our Presidents have sent the rest of the world a clear, powerful message of leadership and conviction. I believe this historic moment will be remembered as one of those times. After 8 years of da... Read more

    Speech at Family Research Council’s “Values Voters Summit” Last week I was honored to speak at the Family Research Council's "Values Voters Summit"--speaking just before President Donald Trump!
