A Little About Mike...
I have the most incredible family & job in the world…..I am married to my best friend Anne (1991) who I met in college at Liberty University and we have two grown children who are now married and building their lives and careers! Casey is married to Kelsey Wingert-Linch and serves on our NorthStar staff as Pastor of Leadership Development and Mary-Michal is married to Jin Han and serves at Bethlehem Church in Winder, GA as one of their Community Ministry Directors.
I have been blessed to be a part of NorthStar since the very first service and have served here since January of 1997. In 2003 I became the Senior Pastor of this amazing church and have absolutely loved it this season of life & ministry! What a blessing to have spent my entire adult life in this community! When I am not in the office, you most likely will find my on a ball field somewhere.
I serve as a Varsity Baseball Community Coach for Allatoona High School and served as the team football chaplain for 15 years. I have spoken frequently for professional teams (Atlanta Falcons & Baltimore Ravens) to college teams across the southeast and host a weekly zoom bible study with MLB scouts-college baseball coaches from across the country.
Whether it is in a locker-room, boardroom or a podcast, I have a passion to see pour into spiritual leaders and help raise the spiritual temperature of our community & our world!
