Michael is one of greatest men I have ever known. He saw me at my rock bottom when I was planning my suicide and I hated life. Before I left his office the first time he had told he was proud of me and that as a father he loved me. Something about him was so genuine and I knew hmichael-1ae meant it and he saw me for what I could be, not for what I was. -Heidi, Missouri

My life will never be the same because of Michael’s deposit of love in my life. He created a larger view of who God is in my life and has taken the time to personally develop the character of Christ in me. -Darrell, Kansas

I know you talked my husband out of a very dangerous situation one night and if not for you I know the situation could have been much worse. I appreciate the fact that we could call you guys at any time and you were there. You always listened and never judged. Because of you guys we have a strong beautiful healthy marriage! – Lisa, Missouri

Pastor Michael specializes in helping men come out of pain and into all God has for them to be. He has a big heart and I believe that whatever ails you he could help you get past. It doesn’t matter what it is, I’m sure he’s heard it all before and he’s not judgmental. -Tracey, Kansas

I want you to know how much of an inspiration you were to my recovery. I have been free from drugs now for over 3 years. You and Diana were a great help in my life several times. I wanted to say Thank You for serving the LORD. -Rick, Missouri

Michael’s experience in marriage and relationships is deep and comforting. I appreciate his focus on Christ and Biblical teachings of marriage, which is foundational, but he brought in other aspects as well. Michael is a blessing and the first counselor (we have had four) that spoke to my head and heart. -Ken, Colorado

You were always there for us when we needed you. My family is in a better place because of the time that you took out of your life to speak into ours. -Bob, Missouri

Michael has been a mentor, pastor and friend to my family for several years. His personal ministry and council to me have been invaluable. He shoots you straight and challenges you to break free from the patterns that hold you back from living your life to the fullest. He listens and understands. His passion is to see you come alive in the places your heart has died. He is a mans man, with a big heart. – Matthew, Virginia
