It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.” – Samuel Adams
With his snowy white hair and 6’ 4’’ frame, Mark Collins bears a remarkable resemblance to our founding father, George Washington. Having the same build and general appearance as the famous statesman has proven to be fortunate for Collins, he has been asked to portray Washington both on TV and in movies, most recently in “National Treasure: Book of Secrets.” Mark’s skill, however, is not limited to this. He has portrayed Washington, sans script, in a number of speaking engagements and for a diverse set of audiences including the military, schools, churches, and parades. Whether on the movie or TV screen, or from the stage, or pulpit, Collins’ talent for captivating an audience through his powerful speech translates across all audiences. The historical precision of his presentation combined with his moving performance transports his listeners across time, to an era on the verge of great revolution.
Comparing an original “life mask”
of Washington at age 53 in 1785
by Houdon, the French sculptor,
there is an uncanny resemblance.
Mark Collins is a graduate of Northwood University, with a BA in Business. Married to his wife Devy for 30 years they have 6 children ( 28yrs-13yrs ) all home schooled. Currently, Mark is the Pastor of First Baptist Church of Yorktown, Texas.
