Mike has been in full time ministry for over 35 years serving in four different churches with Cypress Church being the longest place of ministry. Actually, Mike is the longest-term lead pastor of Cypress Church’s history. Mike’s ministry career started in youth ministry serving nearly 20 years as a youth pastor. Mike then helped start a young adult church that grew from 50 to 150 in around 3 months. God then moved Mike to take a Lead Pastor position and he soon moved to Cypress in 2004.
Mike is a natural shepherd, caring for all people and seeking to love them with the grace, mercy and love of God. He is also a sought after communicator and teacher using creative methods to impart God’s truths. He writes a weekly blog that is picked up by the local papers and has become a consistent weekly article all over Orange County.
Mike holds a BA in Speech Communication from San Diego State University, a Master of Divinity from Western Theological Seminary of Portland/San Jose, and is a doctoral candidate at Talbot Theological Seminary in La Mirada.
Mike is married to Kristi (a local kindergarten teacher) and they have three married children with each having 2 children (that’s 6 grandkids if you were counting).
