Mark Brende

Mark, with the great support of his wife, Jennifer, works with iEmpathize to engage universities and faith communities in the task of ending child sexual exploitation and trafficking. Through art, media and artifacts, Mark creates pathways for this generation to enter the story of victims, survivors and the heroes who are helping restore countless lives and communities in Cambodia, Thailand, Mexico, Russia and the United States.

Mark pursues the hearts of this generation to help move them from apathy and create an “Empathetic Civilization” that shares God’s heart for the world and encounters Christ at the center. Read more about Mark’s work with iEmpathize at
