The Story

During his last year of high school, Mike gave his life to Christ on a mission trip in what was considered the most dangerous city in the world at that time. Years before that decision, his parent broke up, and he was kicked out of his house when he was 14. He spent years walking the broad road until he was invited to a church event which is deeply connected to everything he does today in ministry.

Over the years, Mike has done everything from skydiving in Dubai, surfing in California, stand-up comedy at Yuks Yuks, mountain climbing in China, celebrating with the Stanley Cup, white water rafting in the Central American jungles, climbing the Monty Python Castle in Scotland, getting baptized in Israel, snorkelling the ocean and being selected for Fear Factor Live in the US….Up next, running with the bulls?

The Speaker

Theology with comedy is the best way to describe Mike’s speaking style.

With over 3000 speaking engagements, Mike has spoken in small American towns hosting large music festivals to churches in Jerusalem, Israel.

As an ordained pastor, Mike studied business, theology, and Christian leadership, which contributes towards his doctorate… which he might never finish haha.
With his life experience, and education, Mike commonly finds himself teaching at churches on Sunday morning, conferences, camps, Bible Colleges, and music festivals. Mike is motivated by his love for Jesus, and his love for people as he uses his education, dynamic speaking experience and storytelling humour to connect with everyone on and off the stage.

Over the years he has had the opportunity to team up with speakers such as Nick Vujicic, Francis Chan, Chad Veach, Jefferson Bethke,
Eric Samuel Timm, Shane Claiborne, Reggie Dabbs, Bob Lenz, Mike Foster, and comedian John Crist.

On top of that, Mike has teamed up with Skillet, TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, Crowder, Switchfoot, Newsboys, For King and Country, Casting Crowns, Hillsong, MercyMe, Lecrae, Kari Jobe, Relient K, Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, We the Kingdom, and many more.

Mike is definitely more than just a speaker though. What he brings “offstage” for your events might be more valuable than what he does onstage.

The Entrepreneur

Most people who see Mike on stage are surprised to discover his ministry background because they just see him as a ‘speaker’. Before Mike went to Bible College, and put his attention on speaking, he studied business and would help many churches and organizations startup or reshape almost 30 ministries over those years. As of  this moment, Mike still sits down with leadership teams and helps them develop ministries and strategies to be effective in this culture – More so for Young Adult and Young Professionals.

The Writer

Mike is regularly published by different magazines and national publications.

He currently has a book in the works. He spent a month in L.A working on his book while getting feedback from a New York Times bestselling author to help him transition his communication style while speaking on a stage into words on a page. If all goes to plan, the book shouldn’t suck…. and should be released next year.

The Rockstar

Since Mike was a child, he has always had an awareness, and heart towards anyone with special needs and disabilities. You will see this fully on display today when Mike walks throughout the crowd connecting with his friends at each event he is speaking at.

“The Rockstar” is a VIP experience Mike provides for this community to join his guest list for the night. From early access, shouts from the stage, meeting his friends behind the scenes (artists), and receiving a black beanie – Mike wants them to feel like the biggest star in the room with this unique experience.
