A little about Mike

Originally from Roanoke, where his parents raised him and his brother in a loving, Christian home, Mike received his calling to ministry in 1999. He received his education in preaching and biblical studies from Ferrum College (1997-2002) and Johnson University (2004-2006). His background includes both denominational and non-denominational worship and service. 

Mike believes all scripture is God-breathed, and useful for teaching others, improving our own lives, and equipping the church in every good work as laid out in 2 Timothy 3:16-17. He officiates traditional marriage ceremonies, promotes baptism by submersion, encourages bible studies, and community service.

 

Servant leadership is a core value of Mike's and he strives daily to be obedient to Christ and the example He set in John 14:12-15. He volunteers as a police chaplain for Bedford Police Department and Roanoke City Police Department.

Mike met his wife, Sara, in 2012, and together they developed a strong friendship, deep love and shared

commitment to Christ. They entered their marriage covenant in a small Christian ceremony in February 2014. Pastor Mike is known to drink too much coffee, loves chocolate, and is a kid at heart! They live on a family farm in Bedford County with their dog Juliet and two cats Alex and Lucy. They are the proud soon-to-be adoptive parents of four little boys.
