Hello! I’m Mark

Rev. Mark Crear, Ph.D., is a dynamic man who is no stranger to exceeding mental & physical challenges at high levels as well as excelling within and helping individuals as well as  institutions overcome the hurdles of life and find get stay In The Zone.

 Before jumping any “hurdles” on the track, Mark had plenty of hurdles to jump off. Growing up in a single family home and being a victim of physical and emotional abuse, Crear early on knew that life was not fair and had plenty of reasons and excuses to quit and give up. However, “quitting” was not a part of Dr. Crear’s DNA. Instead, Mark relied on his faith and hard work to carry him from his life of abuse, abandonment, rejection and disappointments, to #1 in the world. 

As a two-time Olympic medalist and athlete (110 Meter Hurdles), Mark understands the importance of hard work, perseverance, and focus. These attributes have helped him as a mental health educator, published author, and all the other professional hats that Dr. Crear wears. Getting his Ph.D. from Alliant International University in Clinical Psychology, graduating from the University of Southern California with a master’s degree in counseling psychology and a bachelor’s degree in sociology, calling Dr. Crear an academic would be an understatement. On top of his impressive intellectual prowess, Dr. Mark is a therapist, coach, consultant and motivational speaker. He has over 15 years of training, counseling, and coaching experience in many different areas. They include: multicultural competency, diversity & inclusion, racial reconciliation and life, relationship, and organizational & performance. As if he weren’t doing enough already, Dr. Crear is currently the executive director of the American Association of Christian Counselors’ Multicultural division, and adjunct professor of psychology at Houston Baptist University. What’s Dr. Crear’s greatest achievement? It wasn’t his role as founding principal of In the Zone Coaching, Counseling, and Consulting group, or his role as a traveling minister, speaking to both corporations and churches, but instead as loving husband and doting father.
