Michael and his wife, Kirby, have three children: McKenzie, Carter & John Thomas. Michael and Kirby met while studying at Ole Miss where God was gracious to call them both to faith in Christ through the ministry of Reformed University Fellowship. They were married soon after graduation and together spent a year in Salzburg, Austria, where Michael studied German. They later moved to St. Louis, MO where they attended Covenant Theological Seminary. Michael received a Master of Divinity and Kirby received a Master of Theological Studies. Michael's relationship with RYM began the summer of 2000 at the beloved Laguna Beach Christian Retreat Center. Since that time, he has led groups from Clemson Presbyterian Church, Kirk of the Hills and Trinity Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, VA to many RYM summer conferences. He has also been a big proponent for RYM's Youth Leader Training (YLT) since its beginnings. As the Director of Training, Michael’s ministry focus within RYM is threefold: the Youth Leader Training Conference, the Church Intern Program and coaching/consulting/providing pastoral care for youth leaders and pastors.
