Mike was one of the original church plant members of Church of the Beloved and remembers when the core team used to have meetings in his apartment before public services were launched in early 2012. After receiving Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Ohio State University, he moved to Chicago (where he was born) in 2005 to pursue his Master of Divinity degree at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, which he completed in 2010. Mike loves to worship God with all of his heart and desires to see Jesus lifted up in his hometown so that all men and women would know the sweet love of God.
In his free time, he enjoys hanging out with his boys, Noah and Jonah. They are precious gifts from God and they teach Mike so much about the love of God. His prayer as a dad is to return the favor.
