Michael is also pursuing a Master’s degree in Pastoral Ministry from Andrews University to augment his experience in practical ministry. If anything is to be said about Michael’s ministry is that he loves young people and their families. He believes that God has called him to an awesome ministry as a helper to youth, young adults, and families. The encouragement given in Phil 1:6 is that God will complete the work which He began in you. Michael’s desire is to run the race that God has given him and to finish it well. Jesus Christ and his family are the most important things to him and he desires that everyone would come to know Jesus and the security salvation brings. Soli Deo Gloria (Glory to God Alone)
