Prior to starting Parkway Fellowship, Mike was a Youth Pastor for five years and then a Minister of Education for 2 years. In 2002, The Lord led Mike to start Parkway Fellowship, a Purpose-Driven church in the Katy area with a focus on reaching people who have never been to church or have been out of church for whatever reason.
Mike became a Christ-follower when he was 11 years old. From that point he grew slowly but steadily in his faith in God. Mike's faith really turned a corner when he was a freshman at Baylor. It was then that he moved from merely being obedient to God to also developing a relationship with God. This is when he says everything changed for him.
"My faith really became alive because I was doing more than being religious, I was deepening a relationship. For me, that has made all the difference."
Mike likes anything outdoors, especially golf, hunting, and hiking. One of Mike's favorite hiking vacations was in Yellowstone National Park, where he vacationed with his family in 2013. Mike married his wonderful wife Amy in 1999 and they have two children, Libby and Ben. They also have a black lab named Mabel and three fish tanks.
