Hello, I'm Pastor Mike...
I am the Chaplain at True North Academy. I also teach Bible and Logic for the 7th/8th class.
Born: Miami, Florida
Education: I attended Grace Theological Seminary in IN, where I obtained a Master of Arts (MA) in Christian Ministry and a Master of Business Administration (MBA). I also received a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min) in expository preaching and I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) at
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
What was your early career like? I served in my first pastorate here in Saint Cloud, serving as Lead Pastor of Harmony Community Church for more than 3 years.
Family: I am married to Melanie since 2004 and have beautiful children; Caleb (2009), Cadence (2010), Logan (2012), Timothy (2014) and Daisy (2019).
In my free time, I love to: Spend time with my family (we are vloggers and have a YouTube channel). I am a published author and enjoy writing very much. I enjoy playing guitar and reading.
Passions for the Kingdom of God: I have a passion for the Great Commission and seeing it fulfilled in the local church. I long to see more and better disciples made in my own community and am driven to be part of the work necessary for people to come to hear and believe the gospel. I am personally passionate about expository preaching and training leaders for Great Commission work.
