In Sept, 2004, FBC Newbern called Mike to serve as their Bi-vocational Youth Director while continuing his teaching career. In 2007, Mike was ordained into the ministry. His desire in student ministry is to see students meet and fall in love with Jesus and then share that love with others who are in their circle of influence.
