Mike’s mission is to provide spiritual and pastoral leadership so that the church might fulfill its mission and purpose as the body of Christ.
Although I grew up in a loving Christian home, I struggled to fully grasp how or why God would or could love me.
After wrestling with the truths of the Bible regarding God’s love, I finally surrendered to Him at the age of 15. I never thought I would be a “preacher” as a result of this choice, but as I followed Jesus, it was apparent that this was His calling on my life.
It is truly a joy to walk daily with Christ and to serve him by serving others. While never easy, leading others to know Jesus and walking with Him is tremendously fulfilling.
My Journey to Real Life:
I came to Real Life to help start our church in 1989. Twenty-three people in a single wide mobile home agreed to call my wife, Bari and me to serve. So we moved from Ft. Worth, Texas and have invested our lives here ever since.
My wife, Bari and I have been married since 1986. She is the love of my life. God has blessed us with two tremendously gifted almost adult children, Kyndal and Austin, who deeply love the Lord Jesus.
My passion is to lead people into a dynamic, real relationship with Jesus Christ.
