Mike was raised in the church.  From birth, he went to the Nelsonville Wesleyan Church, where he accepted the Lord as his savior at age 12 at a youth camp at Muskingum College.  During his college years Mike chose to walk away from his faith as he was convinced by courses about the history of the church and very persuasive professors that there was no God and everything he believed and was taught all his life was a lie.  This fact didn’t sit well with Mike and while he didn’t know if he believed, he certainly wouldn’t renounce his faith either.  After Mike met his wife, he began going back to church, and a quest for a greater faith began, going from Methodist, to Baptist, to finally a more Pentecostal church, Mike finally found what had been missing from his spiritual walk, a relationship.  Mike began to understand the grace of God and His love for him, and what he truly did by sending his son Jesus Christ.  Mike now attends Milestone Church in McKinney, TX where he serves as an usher and greeter.  Mike has served in previous churches as a children’s teacher, youth director, and VBS assistant and puppeteer.
