Mark Canada

Founder & CEO
Marketplace & Development Enterprises (MDE)

With a background in accounting and philosophy and 20+ years practicing tax law, Mark now serves as the CEO of MDE. Prior to this, Mark and his wife, Charlene spent 12 years establishing a missionary care ministry through their church and 4 years living overseas with SEND International. Experience in both business and cross-cultural ministry has shaped the structure of MDE–a service organization connecting believers with the business, ministry, and personal resources and support they need to share the message and love of Christ through relationships built as a natural part of their authentic participation in the marketplaces of unreached communities. The Canadas now live in Farmington, Michigan, and they enjoy renovating houses, discovering new restaurants, and reading books aloud together.
