Over the years he has participated in various Christian leadership and training programs and has served in numerous capacities within the Church. Although Mike had been raised in a Christian home and attended church as a youth, he didn't experience the power of the holy spirit until one night in August 1971 when he accepted Jesus as his lord and savior and spoke in tongues for the first time. That night changed his life forever. Since then he has spent countless hours both learning the biblical truths about manifesting power from on high as well as teaching others to bring that same power into their own lives.
