Mark Weird also known as Pawn 4 God is a passionate rapper/songwriter from Louisville, Kentucky. Mark began to show
an interest for music as an adolescent where he would keep notebooks and journals full of raps and spoken word. He noticed it was an outlet for him to speak, vent, and to feel heard. Mark was introduced to God and the church at an early age due to his father being in ministry. About half way through his life he took the backlash of his parents’ divorce and watched his parents fall away and the church crumble. Holding onto everything he had Mark slowly started to get sucked into worldly lifestyle changes and habits. The tone of his music started to change, but he never quit writing. He went through a very tough time but couldn't deny the call and purpose on his life. Through his God given talent he released his testimony and expressed God’s grace and mercy through his own struggles and journey. Mark married his wife at age 19 and has been married to Brittany for 14 years. The two have two amazing kids. Mark and his wife Brittany are the lead youth pastors at All Nations Worship Assembly (Louisville, KY). He is passionate about spreading the message of Jesus Christ and helping this generation not get sucked into the enemy's traps. Pawn4God stands for: A pawn in a chess game is at times the most overlooked piece on the board however it is the first to lay its life down for the King, the first to move with no hesitation, and doesn't go back. Mark lives daily with pawn mentality, to move when asked to, lay down his flesh"
