The Life of Christ - About

Pastor Edward F. Markquart is the author of the Internet website, SERMONS FROM SEATTLE. 40,000-50,000 different pastors from 150 countries (52% from the USA, 22% Canada, 16% United Kingdom, 9% Australia/South Africa) visit this website monthly, examine 2.5 sermons, and adapt these preaching materials to their congregational needs. 

Pastor Markquart has been the pastor of Grace Lutheran Church since l973. The congregation centers on Jesus Christ and his love and grace for all people.

The congregation has grown to be one of the larger worshipping congregations on the West coast. The congregation is known for its many and varied ministries:  invigorating worship services, youth and music ministries, homeless shelter, Third World missions, world hunger program, Bible studies, small groups, confirmation, retreats, and much more.  The congregation is recognized for its generous financial benevolences and gives away a high percentage of its offerings. A neighbor states: “Grace is the church on the corner that never stops and the parking lot seems forever full.”

Pastor Markquart  retired in 2007, after 34 years serving in that congregation.

Pastor Markquart has authored three books that have been useful to pastors, congregations, and seminary students: QUEST FOR BETTER PREACHING (used by seminaries as a basic text in preaching), WITNESSES FOR CHRIST (used by a few thousand congregations for evangelism in the Lutheran church) and THE BIBLE FOR TODAY (a Bible centered confirmation program which has been used by more than a thousand congregations.) Pastor Markquart has conducted numerous preaching and evangelism seminars in all sections of USA.

In his retirement, Pastor Markquart is preparing to market his Biblical classes that he has taught during the past 34 years at Grace Lutheran. He will be conducting two preaching/teaching seminars a year for ten years. One internationally, one nationally.
