Mike understands that God’s priorities for life begin with authentic relationships: God first, wife and family a close second, followed by vocation, ministry and civic involvement. Within those priorities, his passion and joy is to point people to a transformational relationship with Jesus Christ and to encourage them to follow Him for a lifetime.
Mike is married to the love of his life, Carla, and has two amazing sons, Christian and Cayden. While not spending time with them, he has been privileged to minister at Valley Christian Church of Chino, California since 1997 in various ministries. A graduate of The Master’s College and Hope International University, he was ordained Lead Pastor in June of 2005.
By investing in the community he loves, Mike has served the men and women of the Chino Police Department and the City of Chino since 2001 as a Police Chaplain, coordinating the program, and providing on-demand support in critical incidents, crisis intervention, and counseling in personal issues.
On a personal note, he actively roots for the L.A. Dodgers, loves chips and salsa, and enjoys playing racquetball.
