The Shepherd's Tent Mark & Destani Casto
Mark and Destani Casto were married in 2007 after being friends since middle school. It didn’t take long for love to grow their tribe with three children, Elijah, Ezekiel, and Elliana. Over the past 12 years they have traveled as evangelists, helping bridge generations, and calling people to a lifestyle of intimacy with Jesus.
Mark & Destani moved their family to South Carolina in 2015 to be joined to their Spiritual Father & Mother, Apostle Damon & Tammy Thompson, and develop roots in the Carolina Revival family. After three years of saying yes to the lifestyle of the wilderness, the Lord made it clear that they were to take the DNA of Carolina Revival and establish the Shepherd’s Tent in Covington, GA.
This is my story. After traveling for over 10 years as an evangelist, I did the one thing I said I would never do, put the ministry before intimacy with Jesus. I felt like the tender soil of my heart had become full of weeds and thorns, while I worked hard to tend everyone else’s ministry vineyards. It was time for a change.
The Lord opened the door for our family to move to South Carolina in 2015 to sit under our Apostle, Damon & Tammy Thompson, and the Hope Chapel family. It was during the Fall of 2016 that we were commissioned to go deep in the book of Song of Solomon. That’s when I encountered the Good Shepherd and He lead me into the greatest encounter of love I had ever experienced with God!
I went from a burnt out preacher to a bride who ravished the heart of Jesus! I was finally convinced that I could never win the argument of why He should not love me. Since that day, I have made it my aim to guard my heart by knowing who I am and not find my identity in what I do. To the best of my ability I am saying yes to this lifestyle of devotion to Jesus!
In this process, the Lord began to share with me that a restored Shulamite becomes a model for other brides-to-be. Since 2014 we have carried prophetic words and encounters about the Atlanta region. Now we can see clearly that it was in the heart of Yahweh all along to send us from this love affair into Covington, GA to establish a place of rest for others who have lost sight of Him and have become weary on the journey...hence, the Shepherd’s Tent.
From Pastor Mark Books
I like to write about my process with the Lord in hopes that it will provide encouragement for those who may find themselves on the same path. -Mark Casto
In Liar: Exposing Myths In Spiritual Warfare, Mark Casto is releasing an invitation out of demonic fascination and into a superior knowledge that only exists in the life of devotion to Jesus. Liar is the beginning of a journey for those who can hear the call to start developing a theology of Victory in Christ! With the door of the Garden of God wide open and access to such a high degree of Jesus’ Presence, we must discontinue our fascination with an inferior realm.
When Misfits Become Kings
Misunderstood. Misinformed. These misfits wander the world, missing both a plan and a purpose, never realizing that their destiny is divine. But it’s not just the story of this generation; it’s the condition of us all. At some point every person has felt disconnected, unqualified, and alone. But there is good news. Your God-designed destiny is not controlled by your background, or social or economic status. It is unlocked through secret intimacy with the creator of your future. That’s where misfits become kings.
