Mike grew up in Montana. 

He proudly served in the Marine Corps. Thereafter, he married Lynne, a Montana farmer’s daughter, and together they raised two sons and a daughter. His education includes time at California Baptist College, then Multnomah Bible College and finally Montana State University.

Mike was ordained and served as a Youth Pastor in Manhattan, Montana, while leading a skateboard ministry for ten years in the beautiful Gallatin Valley. He later served twelve years as senior pastor of Chugwater Valley Church in Wyoming.

Most recently Mike was called to pastor the Connell First Baptist Church. Mike and Lynne are happy to be living closer to their two sons and their families. Their daughter lives in Alaska, which they enjoy visiting.

We live richly because of Christ and love the world richly for Christ, to bring his rich love to a lost world.
