Mike likes long walks on the beach...
Actually, if you wanna get to know me, let's go out for coffee (dm me). I'm not a coffee snob, I just like drinking coffee and visiting with people. My wife Bonnie and I have been married since 1988 (so a while) and we have 3 amazing adult kids and two ultra-amazing daughter-in-laws. We have all been born-again and baptized through the C&MA and we love being part of that family of churches. Bonnie and I have been in pastoral ministry since 1991 and we've served in only two C&MA churches since them. We have been at Lawson since 2002.
Bonnie and I have three main ministry goals: (1.) that people learn to love Jesus first, (2.) they learn to listen to the voice of Jesus daily, and (3.) they know how to disciple others and put Jesus on display in their Life Network. It has taken us decades of learning these things for ourselves and we want others to experience Jesus in these ways to. Knowing God as I do, I am convinced that the Church owes the world a powerful encounter with the living Triune God, for a Gospel without power is no gospel at all.
So ya, connect with me and let's get to know each other.
