“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark, and came to know him as a truly gifted orator.

He is a champion of disability inclusion and is utterly committed to the value, dignity and equality of all human life.” ― Bobby Schindler, brother of Terri Schiavo and Executive Director, Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Foundation.
