After pastoring a church in Northern Michigan for several years, Mike (57) and his wife Leeanne moved to Minneapolis to pursue an M.Div. at Bethlehem Seminary. Mike works part-time as a coach and course creator for Biblearc, an online resource for Bible study, and serves as an elder at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis. Mike’s great interest is not only teaching God’s word but equipping others with tools that will nurture their own joy in study and discovery. He desires to serve the global church in training pastors and church leaders. Mike and Leeanne have five adult children and a growing cache of grandchildren.
