Having served in a variety of ministry areas Mike is now serving as Minister of Missions here at First Baptist. Mike says, "it seems like every position and every opportunity I have had in serving God has led to this place and ministry in my life."

"In this position I have had the opportunity to see many new beginnings in missions of the church and it has been wonderful to see how God is working in so many ways here at First Baptist."
