After serving for seven years as a missionary in an African village, Mark Volkers roamed the planet for a decade as a photojournalist and documentary film maker for Christian Reformed World Missions and other organizations. His films about the cultures, people and places of the world have earned him over 20 national and international awards.

In 2005, Mark and his family moved to NW Iowa to help Dordt College launch a new program in production and media studies. Mark wants to see students graduate from Dordt who can think critically about issues in today's world--especially as they relate to media--and who have the ability to go out and produce content worth consuming.
