In 2017, Paster Mike was honored with the "Man of the Year" Award. Pastor Mike was recognized for his dedication to helping children and young adults that were victims of child abuse, sex trafficking, ritual abuse, pornography victims and those children caught in domestic violence situations. Pastor Mike is humbled by this award and does not hesitate to give all of the glory to Jesus Christ for providing his the opportunity and skills needed to reach the broken hearted, those who suffer unspeakable abuse and for paving the way as a leader to help others serve along side of him to be a beacon of light in the darkest of circumstances. Those who know Pastor Mike know that he serves unconditionally and goes where there is need. It is not uncommon to hear him say "put on the coffee" if there is a missing child or "where can we go and what is needed to help". He is a true example of a servant for others.
