Michael has served Manna Church as Senior Pastor for over thirty years. In that time, he has seen the church grow from 350 members in 1985 to almost 9,000 members in 2017. Coupling sound biblical teaching with relevant, practical application and cutting-edge outreach, Michael and the pastoral staff have worked to create an “others-focused” culture that lifts the advancement of the Kingdom of God far above the concept of the stereotypical “me” church. Michael’s heart is not only to see God’s people equipped to change their world, but also for the planting of churches with the same world-changing vision. Under his leadership, Manna has helped to plant over 100 churches to date. Michael has led Manna into the frontlines of the war against human trafficking, and was invited to speak on the issue at Oxford University in 2013 and 2015. He, also mentors national pastors with Leadership Network and international pastors with the European Learning Community. Under Michael’s leadership, Manna Church has embraced a “multiply strategy” and has a vision to plant a version of Manna Church near every US military base in the world. Michael and the Manna team seek to inspire God’s people toward lives of active service and love around the world, as well as, at home. Manna is deeply involved in global missions, actively supporting the advancement of the Kingdom in 63 countries. Outreach Magazine has named Manna Church the 38th fastest growing and the 92nd largest church in America in 2017.
