About Me

My background


Thank you for visiting Pardon the Pastor. My name is Mark Ryan Lawrence, being a man of faith, and a man of God, it has renewed me while serving a prison

sentence of 20 years now.  Currently I am the Lead Pastor in the Buckeye AZ. prison that I reside. My faith in Jesus Christ has allowed me to share the message of hope & love with several other inmates while incarcerated. 

My hope is to be pardoned of the remainder of my sentence in prison. Please write a short testimonial below email is pardonthepastor@gmail.com

My faith

 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. 

My involvement

Being kind could very easily be life-giving to both the giver and receiver. When one is coming from a place of generosity, of giving and kindness that is pure and without any expectation or reward in return, what is occurring is the manifestation of a deeper reality, a deeper meaning and knowing that you are not so alone. This is why I spread the Gospel to others.

I want to first start by saying, thank you Lord Jesus Christ my personal Lord and savior for allowing me to meet my pastor and my brother in Christ Jesus, Mark Ryan Lawrence. This man of God has been such a blessing for me in my life and not only my life but for literally others Lives as well at lewis prison complex at stiner unit. He has truly helped me understand my identity in christ jesus and how it is to truly, whole heartedly be a leader and a king, he has shown me what real love is through christ jesus not only by speaking to me on a day to day basis but by actually showing me by his good deeds/conduct! He continues to be a reflection of Jesus Christ himself, which I know we all need to see from time to time in others. The love of Jesus Christ. In the word God tells us that (as he is so are we in this world) 1 john 4:17. I love this man of God I thank God for him in my life daily. I continue to pray for you brother in Christ. God bless you!
