Pastor Michael grew up in the Midwestern heartland of Indiana and Illinois as the third of four sons. He attended Indiana University, but transferred his junior year and graduated from Aurora University in the Chicagoland area intending to study law.
However, the LORD’s providence led him into the gospel ministry instead. After graduating seminary he taught Greek and New Testament while pastoring PCA congregations in the Upstate South Carolina region.
Michael and his lovely bride, Laurie, have three grown children (Courtney, Samantha, Josef) and three grandchildren.
Along with a dedicated team of Elders and Deacons at Spriggs Road Church and a congregation that doesn’t merely hear God’s word but does it, Pastor Michael feels privileged to serve Christ in the shadow of the nation’s capital. He relishes expositional preaching and teaching with the goal that the audience tackle the issues arising from the text and seek to discover its meaning for living in the twenty-first century.
Michael and Laurie have lived in Northern Virginia since 1997.
