We’re all about people, so meet the team.

Mark Foster- Owner / Manager - Mark has been running Mission Magic since 2012 and under his leadership the ministry and business has flourished. Not only has Mark extensive business experience, he’s also a Licenses Lay Minster in the Church of England, studying 'Mission, Ministry & Theology' part time at St Hild College Sheffield and is an active member of both the Christian Magicians UK and the York Society of Magicians. But some how he still finds time to spend with his wife Susie and their four children.

Bev Wood – Office Manager – Bev keeps the wheels of Mission Magic turning. Bev’s training as a Stage Manager has given her the skills to juggle the dozens of different demands on her time. From making up our unique range of magic tricks, to dealing with customer queries and managing the stock. And somehow Bev still finds time for her husband Dan (yes that Dan Wood!) and her two wonderful boys.

Paul Birch – Fulfilment Manager – If you’ve placed an order with Mission Magic it’s likely that Paul has fulfilled it, making sure it’s packed and posted with TLC. Paul joined the team in 2023 and is an accomplished freelance writer, teacher and university lecturer. We’re delighted to have Paul on the team.

Dan Wood – Creative Consultant – If you discover a pun on our website or a fun presentation in our instructions you’ve discovered Dan’s handy work. Dan's passion for high quality family entertainment can be seen in his unique presentations, booklets, website descriptions and videos he creates for Mission Magic. When Dan is not in the office, he’s entertaining children with his Magic Hatter shows, working in hospitals as a Giggle Doctor and leading families around York on his Wizard Walks. He’s a self-confessed ‘big kid' and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Paul Morley – Founder - 1954-2020. Paul founded Mission Magic in 2008 to meet the demand created by his gospel magic ministry. Before his untimely death, Paul was an Assemblies of God Minister who preached and performed in over 17 different countries. He was Mission Magic's very own 'international man of mystery'! Paul's ideal way of relaxing was sun, sea and a good curry, sometimes difficult to find in his home town of Retford.
