Giving Back

“In His Sandbox”

As a boy growing up as one of four brothers, Mark often heard his mom say, "now you boys need to play well together in the sand box.” In our business, we try to play well in the sandbox, making every effort not to kick sand in each other’s faces. Here are some ways we attempt to play well and love others in "His Sand Box”:


Mark and Ruth, along with his father, David DeJong, are giving back by helping the Kenyan people with building projects and recently putting in a fresh water well. We invite you to learn more.

J316 Ministries

In 2009, Mark DeJong helped co-found J316 Ministries with Butch and Becky Morely and continues to serve as a board member. This organization shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ through sports camps, both locally and in more than 20 countries around the world.

Other Mission Work

Mark and his wife Ruth both grew up overseas as children of missionaries. Their love of different cultures and travel, combined with their desire to share what God has given them and help others has inspired them to become involved with various missions and work teams, both locally in the USA, and abroad in Honduras, Dominican Republic, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Cambodia, Mexico, and Bahamas.
