Pastor Michael grew up in Chattooga County and graduated from Trion High School. He was saved in middle school at 11 years old at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) conference and was baptized at Trion First Baptist Church. Pastor Michael has lived in Chattooga County his whole life except during college, where he lived in Athens and Carrollton, Georgia.
While pursuing a career in medicine, he felt God calling him to ministry and decided to follow God’s will for his life above everything else. After this, he served as a volunteer chaplain as the Men’s Discipleship Leader at the Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) on his college campus. He is currently a Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary student and pursuing a Master of Divinity degree in Preaching and Pastoral Ministry.
Pastor Michael now serves as the Discipleship Pastor at Dry Valley Baptist Church, where he hopes to deepen others’ faith and move the church toward spiritual maturity. As he faithfully preaches the Word of God and teaches on numerous spiritual disciplines of the Christian life, he hopes to bring up disciple-makers and leaders in the church and show that we can forever grow in Christ.
