Mark Hamby

Mark Hamby is founder and president of Lamplighter Publishing and Lamplighter Theatre. He and his wife, Debbie, live in northeastern Pennsylvania, where they homeschooled their three children.

As an author, speaker, and Bible teacher, Mark Hamby most enjoys helping his audience to remove the mask in order to expose the heart. Unless the heart is reached, there can be no lasting change. Through the genre of storytelling and the life-changing power of God’s Word, Mark’s audiences have learned that the God of all grace is willing and able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ask or think.
