“The questions you ask in this life determine everything.”

This conversation is for anyone who feels like life has gotten too noisy, too distracting, and too exhausting. So we might be speaking to everyone today.

Marcus Black is a former pastor and current urban missionary providing leadership and mentoring programs to several inner city schools. He’s a traveling inspirational speaker, life coach, and host of The Vitalize Podcast.

Ever since he nearly lost his life at age 18, he’s been committed to making the most of every moment given to him on this earth! Not only does he want to live life to the fullest, but he also wants to give wisdom, love, life, and energy to you and all those he comes into contact with along his journey! That’s the driving force behind his movement The Vitalize Project! Marcus lives, works and podcasts from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and travels all over the country for speaking engagements.
