In his role as Senior Pastor, Mike enjoys preaching the grace and truth of the Biblical Jesus, counseling and giving spiritual help and leading the staff team. He is passionate about pursuing Jesus and helping others do the same! Mike wants to help people overcome sin, fear, pain and anything else that would hold them back from being the mature followers and disciple makers God intends for them to be.
It was while a freshman at UNC that Mike first understood that he had a sin problem and needed a Savior. That fall he received Jesus as his sin-bearer and it’s been an exciting ride ever since! He also met his beautiful bride Sharon at Carolina (Go Heels!). God has given them 5 wonderful kids: Abby, Hannah, Robert, Sarah and Faith. Mike enjoys all things firearms-related, WW2 history and just being with his family.
Mike is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M. ’98), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (B.A. ’91) and Word of Life Bible Institute. Before coming to FCC Mike was blessed to serve for 18 years at BridgePoint Bible Church in Houston, TX, as Youth Pastor and then Connecting Pastor. He joined the FCC staff team in March 2016.
