Worship Pastor & Music Director

Pastor Michael’s love of music of all kinds started at an early age and is something that will always be a part of his life. Like many musicians, his talents are varied. If you were to come on a Sunday morning when he is leading worship, you may see him singing from the keyboard while the next time he may be playing drums. He’s been known to have crawled through the rafters of the church roof on more than one occasion to re-route sound cables too! He is one of those rare individuals who can in a short time become a master of a skill he has just learned. Something you may not know about Pastor Michael is that he is a classically trained tenor and enjoys singing opera even playing the lead in some operas during his college days. But, don’t worry, you won’t hear opera on a Sunday morning! Besides his many talents as a musician, sound technician and vocalist; Pastor Michael loves mentoring young people and watching them grow in their musical gifts and worship to the Lord. His passion is to truly minister and convey through music the truth and freedom that the Lord gives to the hearts of those who are hurting; not just sing a worship song. It is his belief that any vocalist can sing a song but something much deeper is required of a worship leader, a sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. We are so thankful that every member of our Worship Teams has the same heart of worship and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s leading. In his spare time, Pastor Michael loves horseback riding, reading, singing, and spending time with his wife and family.
