PASTORS & STAFF

Mike is the senior pastor at Parker’s Creek, where he has served March 2018. He grew up in Nashville and has spent the last 20 years as a pastor in Ohio. (Please don’t hold that against him, he still has more UT orange and white in his closet than Buckeye scarlet and gray.) Mike and his wife, Cheri, have been married for over 30 years and have two sons, Brad and Jordan, and daughters-in-law, Rebecca and Bethany. Mike and Cheri enjoy getting to know people and, especially, helping people grow in their walk with Christ. Mike also enjoys serving as an Adjunct Professor for Liberty University, where he has taught Apologetics and World Religion as an online professor for 10 years. When he’s not spending time with his family or the church, Mike enjoys being outside with the top off his Jeep and a hike in the woods or a day on the lake.
