Mike is a 3rd generation Floridian, a father of 3 (including identical twin girls) and grandfather of 5. He and his wife Colleen have been married for 37 years and moved to Winter Springs from Boca Raton in 2011, “chasing their kids and grandkids” as he likes to say. He currently serves as one of the worship leaders at Willow Creek Church in Winter Springs.
Mike came to Christ at age 18 through Youth For Christ in Ft. Lauderdale. Over almost 40 years, Mike says he has learned that following Jesus is not always easy or safe, but God has proven Himself faithful even when he is not.
"When I was first introduced to Christian Help, I immediately began supporting the ministry. I love their mission and their approach to accomplishing that mission. At a time when homelessness is on the rise, it’s a privilege to be part of an organization that approaches the problem from multiple sides, including an uncompromising focus on the Gospel and the spiritual needs - as well as the physical needs of their clients."
After a 20 year career at Publix, Mike embarked on a new vocational journey, becoming a financial advisor and eventually becoming a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®). He is also a Certified Kingdom Advisor (CKA®) and the founder of Crossover Point Advisors in Maitland, FL, where he specializes in helping Publix Associates plan for retirement. He also provides biblical financial counsel and stewardship advice to people of faith.
