meet the pastor

Pastor Mike and Wende have been happily married for 37 years and have raised 4 children who are serving the Lord.  They are also incredibly blessed with 9 grandchildren. 

Mike has a B.S. in Business Management and a Master of Theology. He has served as Senior Pastor for the past 34 years in non-denominational churches where his vision has been focused on the Kingdom of God. He had served for over 15 years as an ordaining elder and leader of a regional ministerial fellowship in New York, and is committed to raising young leaders. He has been used to oversee fledgling churches, as well as trouble-shoot and stabilize problematic churches. 

Mike's preaching is meant to be a prophetic expression of the presence of the Holy Spirit, teaching and motivating the gifts within the congregation. He desires to present the Cross of Christ- with passion to win lost souls- with great attention to the believer's identification with Him, that each may be challenged to live a daily Spirit-filled life.
