Importantly, I believe that people experience the joy of the Spirit at worship with him." Pastor Michael also shows, "creativity, courage, confidence and energy. How good!"
Pastor Michael is excited to lead Clinton United Methodist Church where biblical views are embraced and encouraged, with members who care about the needs of those around them and who want to connect others to the body of Christ. Pastor Michael takes worship and preaching very seriously, spending the first hours of his day focused on Bible study.
He graduated from Wesley Theologocial Seminary Course of Study. Pastor Michael has been happily married for 17 years to his wife, Jennifer. They have two children, Willow and Noah, dogs, Litany, Scruffy and Scout, a cat named Minah and an African Tortoise named Shelly.
