Our Lead Pastor
Mike has been our lead Pastor since May of 2012. Educated at Lincoln Christian College and Seminary (now Lincoln Christian University), Mike has pastored churches in Wisconsin, Indiana and Illinois. He came to us after having retired for 10 years following a 20 year ministry in Elkhart, Illinois. Mike's hobbies include, construction, golf, motorcycling, and barbershop singing. Mike was for ten years the director of the Land of Lincoln Chorus (barbershop chorus in Springfield) and for the last eleven years he has sung the Lead in True Blue (a barbershop quartet). Mike brings to our pulpit a relaxed, yet passionate, style based on the application of the text of the Bible to our lives in the 21st Century. Mike and his wife Ruth Ann share five sons, a daughter, 21 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
