Mark van steenwyk

Mark is a writer, teacher, organizer, and guide for those wanting to embrace God's vision for themselves and the world while rejecting the false promises of Empire.

Mark is the author of A Wolf at the Gate, The unKingdom of God, That Holy Anarchist, and the editor of The Missio Dei Breviary. He has contributed to several books and been published at Sojourners, Geez Magazine,, Leadership Magazine, the Mennonite, Mennonite World Review and more.


Mark has traveled across North America sowing seeds of subversive spirituality. He’s taught or facilitated at seminaries, retreats, conferences, churches, shelters, and activist gatherings. He is passionate about the intersection of spiritual life and social liberation.


The word “organizer” can cover everything from convening a conference to planning a political action to bringing neighbors together to directly meet a social need. Mark’s done all of those things, but his “sweet spot” is helping groups discern from the problem to a creative response.


Mark believes that working for social justice is intrinsically tied to a deep experience of Gods presence; there is no real separation between inner and outer vitality. He offers spiritual and political guidance to individuals and teams to help them develop practices and strategies for holistic transformation.
