Michael joined the staff of The Moody Church in the summer of 2008. He gives leadership and oversight to Thrive (Junior High Ministry) and Revolution (High School Ministry), as well as the church’s summer camps. Michael seeks to use his passion for teenagers and for God’s Word to help students grow and mature in their relationship with Christ. Michael’s goal for students is that they would fall deeply in love with Jesus Christ, and that this love would drive them to live a life totally surrendered to Him. Michael initially started serving at The Moody Church through the camping ministry, and served as an intern for several years before joining the staff. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Pastoral Studies from Moody Bible Institute and a Masters of Divinity degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Michael and his wife Kristin live on the north side of Chicago.
