Mike was a New Ager when he first encountered Jesus. A friend went to a Power and Love convention, and came back with the radical idea that God wants to heal everyone, every time. This fueled a hunger in him for anything that had to do with God’s healing power. After watching videos of David Hogan, Dutch Sheets and others, Mike began doing courtroom work almost full time. From Isaiah 22:22, the Lord taught him a new understanding of spiritual warfare. After attending The Gathering in 2017, he’s become actively involved in NW Ekklesia.
