It's also vital to have a financial officer that is highly skilled and knowledgeable. This ensures our partners receive their money and that ITMI remains in good legal standing.
Mark joined the ITMI team in 2011. His passion to reach the lost for Christ and minister to the needy is combined with strong administrative skills that help keep our Tempe office functioning efficiently with a minimal staff.
He willingly sacrifices financially to be able to serve ITMI parters as ITMI's financial officer.
Mark loves to help ITMI's partners in the field, too.
Mark was part of a team that helped bring clean water to a village in Lukulu, Zambia.
He is eager to find additional ways they and their ministries can be helped through seeing them and their ministries in person. He enjoys serving our partners through other methods, too; physical labor, encouragement and training.
Mark has served on mission teams to benefit ITMI's partners in both Europe and Africa.

In 2014, when Mark's wife, Vanessa, began having health troubles that eventually led to a diagnosis of Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer, Mark's ability to travel was limited.
After major surgery, two rounds of chemotherapy with radiation and continued naturopathic treatments, by late 2015 she went into remission and is on the road to full recovery!
This is all thanks to the prayers and support of God's people standing with the Burritts, and of course God Himself, the Great Healer.
Mark is experienced in ministry from multiple perspectives.
In addition to his forty years experience in Business Management and Accounting, Mark has been involved in church leadership, serving as a Worship Pastor, Board Chairman, Bible Teacher and Missions Director.
