Mike was born and raised in sunny Florida. His parents were faithful to involve their family in th
e local church and as a result the Lord saved Mike in the summer following his seventh grade year. He attended The Baptist College of Florida and received a B.A. in Christian Education, and later The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary receiving an M.Div and D.Min. Mike served on staff in Waynesboro, GA, as a youth pastor for 8 years prior to joining Sterling Park Baptist Church in Sterling, VA as a church planting resident in 2015. Mike, along with a team of faithful brothers and sisters in Christ, planted Redeemer Baptist Church in 2016. Mike is blessed to be married to his best friend Carrie and the Lord has graced them with two amazing children: Abbie and Caleb.
