Mario Ducic was born in Zagreb in 1973 to a Catholic Family. During the war, in 1991, he began his theological studies at Theological Seminary Matija Vlačić Ilirik in Zagreb, Croatia. During his second year a Christian befriended him and began witnessing to him. At this time his grandmother became ill and so he asked his friends to pray for her. God answered this prayer and she was healed of her severe pain. The answered prayer softened his heart and that same night as he read the book of John he said to himself, "This is truth. I find myself in every word. This is what I need." And afterward he experienced great change.

After finishing his second year Mario decided to continue a third year of study at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Osijek, Croatia. While studying in Osijek he actively volunteered to work with a refugee camp in Gasinci through the humanitarian aid society "Agape". After his third year he received a scholarship to study abroad. These doors opened to his so miraculously that temporarily left his studies at Evangelical Theological Seminary and completed a two-year course in Practical Theology in one year at Christ For The Nations Institute in Dallas, TX. After completing his studies in America he returned to Osijek in 1996 to complete his theological studies, in the field of Christian counseling, on the theme of "Sexual Abuse of Children". In 2007 he finished his post-graduate theological studies at the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Osijek, Croatia, under the title, "Effective Christian Leadership - Understanding and Implementing Visionary and Foundational Characteristics of Leadership." In 2012 Mario completed his doctoral studies in Practical Theology with special emphasis on leadership through Wagner Leadership Institute in Phoenix, AZ.
