Mike came to Walkchalk to serve as the interim Pastor in September 2018 and became the full time Pastor in June 2019. Prior to that, he spent many years teaching Sunday School and leading Bible studies, as well as speaking in many churches throughout the area.
The foundation of his ministry is the marvelous grace of God and the goal of his sermons is to apply that grace to our everyday lives. In addition to ministering to the spirit, he is passionate about meeting the physical needs of the community.
His wife Debbie is both the love of his life and his partner in ministry, her caring heart is a blessing to all who know her. In his spare time, Mike loves to climb mountains with his family and friends. He has recently begun to work with Clean Water Climb - allowing his love of climbing to become a means of raising funds to drill much needed wells in Africa.
Alexander (or Zander as we affectionally call him) joined the staff in January 2022 to serve as our Youth Pastor. Before joining us, he served for many years with CEF, working to spread the gospel to children throughout the area. He continues that work with CEF today in addition to serving as the Youth Pastor. He has a degree in youth ministries, but more importantly, he has a passion to bring youth to a closer relationship with Christ.
Zander and Rachel were married in April 2023 and enjoy spending their time together playing board and video games, golfing, and visiting coffe shops.
