God has called Mark into a unique ministry, making a difference in the lives of the world’s neediest children by visiting congregations all across the country — raising awareness of the poor, hungry and orphaned children of this world through a volunteer artist association with World Vision. He has teamed with over 100 Christian songwriters, artists and authors that have joined together to do this, including many of today's top recording artists such as Third Day, Casting Crowns, and Sarah McLachlan; and authors like Max Lucado. As a group, they have been able to help transform the lives of over 1 million desperately needy children — many of these include some of the Mark Anzelon performed at Messiah 07.25.2015.over 17 million children orphaned due to HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. He was honored to be named “Outstanding Independent Artist of the Year” in 2009 by World Vision.
Mark sat in with Messiah's praise band last June. He played and sang original songs "Be an Offering" and "Least of These" and shared a moving message about his work with World Vision.
