“As the lead pastor, I would love to endorse Mark and his ministry. Mark has a deep passion for God to move supernaturally. He has an incredible gift of faith and healing and I recommend his ministry to you and that it will bless your church immensely.”

Ps Jack MacDonald    Lead Pastor, Empower Church, Castle Hill (Sydney)

We were so encouraged and thankful for your ministry, your gentleness and willingness to serve the body of Christ in such a powerful way. Greg (who you asked did he need healing and you wondered if he would even respond) reported he has kept the extra freedom of movement in his hand and the healing is continuing. Dad said when you prayed for his leg, he has lost the pain behind his knee. Praise to Jesus, and thanks to you for making the long trip!

Today I spoke with Pastor — and I think he would be quite excited to host you for a weekend, he is leading a change in his church and feels that people would warm to you quickly and be able to receive from Jesus through your approach. Maybe in the new year.

Paul Junjens, Senior Pastor of Heartlands Church, Casino, NSW.

“We are in exciting times in the central west and I believe God has positioned you here with purpose and will use you as He ushers in a spirit of revival and renewal. Praise God.”

Senior Pastor Michael Golden, Ignite Church, Cowra, NSW, Australia

I thoroughly enjoyed your ministry. Many ministers can move in the gifts well but not many can teach well. I was impressed by your ability to understand what God is doing and to work with Him and teach at the same time.

I would like to thank you personally for the fantastic ministry here at Winepress on the weekend. There was a tremendous sense of God’s presence and anointing here, and breakthrough on a fresh scale for us as a church. Our church has certainly appreciated and benefited from your ministry.

Mark Hemans ministered at our 3 weekend services on 15th and 16th March 2008. Mark preached a great message and ministered effectively to our congregation, using the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

There was a great sense of the presence of God in the services, and lives were touched and changed. Some people attested to receiving physical healing and some experienced the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Ps Arthur Cherrie, Senior Pastor Winepress Berwick Vic 3806 

Awesome day yesterday with Ps Mark Hemans people Saved, healed, prophecies, words of knowledge etc glory to God. Ps Wayne Lyons (Facebook)

What a great sunday we had in the presence of God. Ps Mark Hemans brought a great word. The words of knowledge were very accurate over people’s lives. Some were healed of ailments etc. We will get him back mid-Oct this year with a Saturday seminar on “How to operate in the gifts of the Spirit”, as well as both Sunday services.


“This last weekend we received mighty ministry from Mark Hemans in Jesus name. Our Saturday night and Sunday morning service received gentle, reassuring ministry which affirmed many things in peoples’ lives. Physical, emotional and spiritual healing flowed over the people and we were covered in the Glory of God.

As pastor I recommend Mark’ s ministry into churches, community groups and prayer programs.

“On behalf of the leadership of St. Andrews Church, I am writing to express our sincere appreciation and thanks for availing yourself to minister to our congregations, especially in the area of HEALING & WORDS OF PROPHECY during this Holy Week and Easter.

Your presence and ministering have been of great encouragement and edification to our members of this parish and may God continuously use you as His faithful servant.

Rev’d Johnny Chin, Bishop of Brunei

Mark has ministered here at Christ Church Dingley on a couple of occasions in the past 4 years. His inspiring and biblical teaching on faith and ministry in healing is greatly appreciated by our people. I still look with gratitude and awe upon one member of our parish who suffered from vertigo and disabling neck pain that kept her from attending services and made her largely housebound. As a result of a word of faith in Mark’s meeting she was healed and has rarely missed a service in the past four years since that time. This is a lasting testimony to me of the value of Mark’s ministry and the kindness of our Lord Jesus working through him.

Rev’d Wayne Walters, Vicar of Christ Church Anglican, Dingley , Vic  Aust. 

I’m not really sure where to start when it comes to saying thank you. Two days on and I sit here in wonder at our awesome and amazing God. Personally I continue to feel his power move over me each day since, as I go about my responsibilities.

From the time you initially made contact with me the hand of God has been over this past weekend. The excitement among the people and within their spirits was obvious the closer as the time came. Their willingness to fast and pray in preparation was so precious and encouraging for me as their pastor but also kiey to opening the way for Jesus to move.

Your ‘down-to-earth-but-in-the-heavenlies’ approach really spoke to me. You related with each person. You did not stand back. You were ‘human’. The teaching you gave was grounded on the Word of God and certainly Jesus was the focus. Everybody knew that it was Jesus not Mark Hemans that did the ministry; you were just the instrument.

Thank you for your humility to step out of the way and let Jesus touch the lives of these beautiful people who needed Him and His touch so much this weekend. Thank you for accepting us for who we are. Thank you for being open to teach me and let me learn from you.


We give God the glory for all that has happened and we give Him thanks for allowing you as His servant to come and minister in our community.

Mark Hemans has been a tremendous blessing to us and operates in the area of healing but also holds an Empower Seminar. I have seen healing take place in my church with members healed from various illnesses including autism. Mark is coming back to share at our church next month.

Senior Pastor Albert Roche, All Nations Foursquare Church, Auckland, New Zealand

Anne the lady that allow us to use the church said to me that she could not lay on her side she now can do that. Also her lungs and breathing is 100 per cent ok now since prayer. Every one that got healed felt a hot heat on them. God moved in a big way for us.

Ps Don Simpson, Foursquare Church, Whangerei, New Zealand


Last year I met an Australian evangelist, Mark Hemans, with whom I spent some time in prayer. He came to one of the Charisma meetings in Auckland where I met him.

I have subsequently been in touch with him on a number of occasions.He has an excellent healing and evangelistic ministry and my judgement is that he is a person of integrity.

In my experience he is a very humble man whom God is using mightily.

I trust you may have the opportunity of praying about whether you should invite Mark to your church.

I wanted to recommend Mark’s revival/evangelistic ministry in which he regularly moves powerfully, in signs and wonders. Dozens of people who have been impacted through Mark’s ministry, share their miraculous testimonies on Mark’s web site. Mark travels Australia, NZ, & South East Asia by invitation. I personally recommend him to your fellowship. 

Peter Magee, Executive Director, Operation Abba (A Mission Organization)

Pastor Mark Hemans  has been known to me since 1962 when I met his godly parents in Chile. He is a double graduate in Arts & Theology. Following ministy in the Anglican Melbourne Diocsese, he served for several years as a missionary with the South American Missionary Society (SAMS) in a difficult area of Paraguay.

Fulfilling his committment with SAMS, he pastored in Sydney. God prospered his ministry for many years with the establishment & growth of that congregation. God has granted Mark an outstanding multi-faceted ministry in preaching, teaching, evangelism, writing & healing. This ministry has extended into an international outreach in several countries, gaining wide acceptance & recognition.

Mark’s ministry  has been especially blessed in the area of healing, having the joy of seeing God work so powerfully in this area by the power of the Holy Spirit as to include such outstanding examples which could be described as nothing less than  miraculous. He is also experienced in Christian counselling.

As a man of God, his Christan character is of the highest order, I can say without hesitation that Mark lives & ministers in the power of the Holy Spirit, manifesting the three great virtues of faith, hope & love  with an integrity which is unquestionable,

To any church or ministry desirous of the service of such a man of God, I most warmly commend him.

We would like to thank you for your ministry in our church. We are truly blessed  by your ministry and your sharing which encourages us to do more for His works.

Our hope and prayer that God will bring your ministry more to the fulfillment of His glorious vision and pour out His abundant blessing upon you. In His grace,

I wanted to let you know a couple of things following on from your visit to Liverpool Christian Fellowship  just over a fortnight ago.

Firstly, again, thank you for your teaching and pointing everyone to Jesus and your gentle ministry unto Him.

Secondly, on the Thursday following, I received a phone call telling me that one of the elderly women for whom you had prayed away neck pain had had four successive days free of pain and was indeed rejoicing (I have heard nothing that would cause me to think that has changed).

Also, another lady had been healed of pain in her kidneys  during the ministry and you may recall she renounced the curse of fate that had been spoken over those organs as a forgone conclusion from diabetes.

Well, just last week she rang to tell me of another deeper healing that I believe was directly connected to the former. Kind of like you peeled off a deep layer of an onion and exposed something akin to the (or a) root cause.  Praise the Lord. I know that submitting to your ministry facilitated that deeper work and thought I should let you know as a courtesy and to confirm our appreciation of your sharing with us.

So all this to say, thank You for blessing LCF with the deeper things of the Lord and allowing Him to go about His business through your faithfulness. I know in my spirit many lives were deeply touched if by nothing else than your incisive, yet simple and gentle delivery of Truth and Power as His ambassador.
