Michael and his wife Sara reside in Frisco, Texas with their children, Archer & Avery, and dog, Amos.
After graduating from Texas A&M he worked for a para-church ministry called Young Life. It was during that time he developed a friendship with Professor Jack Deere, author of Surprised by the Power of the Holy Spirit. Michael then went to work for Jack at Wellspring Church in North Richland Hills, Texas, where he ran the healing ministry and traveled with Jack to minister to varying churches.
In 2010, Michael was blessed by Jack and the Wellspring elders to do several church plants/prayer rooms with Freeland Ministries, now known as The Upper Room. He is currently pastoring at the Upper Room Frisco and regularly speaks, trains, and ministers in churches both locally and abroad.
