Photo of Marcos MercadoMarcos Mercado has devoted his life to helping people all over the world. Marcos answered his calling at the age of 16 when he started preaching at his local congregation in New York City, where he was born and raised. Over the last two decades, God has transformed him from a young zealot to a spiritual and mature man of God. He has worn many hats in his life; including that of a Full-time Minister, Preacher, Teacher, Motivational Speaker, and Marriage and Life Coach. Now, he is taking his seasoned experience and his passion for people on the airwaves via the weekly radio show “Marriage Beyond the Vows" on Praise 103.9FM (Philadelphia) and 100.9FM (Charlotte, N.C.). He has led life-changing marriage seminars throughout the country helping couples from all walks of life find healing and a future. He now lives in Philadelphia and is happily married to his wife Amarillis, who serves alongside him as a Women’s Ministry Leader. They are the proud parents of two beautiful children ages 7 and 11.
