Michael joined the First Baptist Cleveland Family August 2020. He and his wife Erika have 4 children. Michael serves FBC Cleveland as the Extended Family Pastor to “connect those who connect with First Cleveland, to Jesus.” These connections come from meeting with first time guests at the connection center in the lobby of the church or by responding to a service broadcast online. With this connection Michael gets to live out a passion of telling great stories of what God is doing, and pouring into the lives of others by leading social media for First Cleveland and the LLI Residency program. Michael loves to spend time with his family, running, reading, podcasting (His Podcast is titled DFTW) and pushing himself and others to be better than they were yesterday through spiritual and mental health.
