Growing up in Southern California, Mike met his future wife Jill while working at Magic Mountain in the summer of 1978. They have two grown children and two young granddaughters.
Mike has 15 years of ministry experience, the last eleven as Senior Pastor of a church restart in Paso Robles. He received his education on the fly through an extension of Nazarene Bible College. His primary ministry passion is facilitating healthy relationships and spiritual growth through LIFE groups, and having spiritual conversations with seekers and new believers.
Mike and Jill moved to Fresno in October 2011, began attending Northside, and became members. In August 2013 God opened a door for Mike to join the staff as Connections Pastor, responsible for LIFE Groups and Guest Services.
Used to be basketball and football, now mainly golf. I only follow one team, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Think Blue!
