Micah was born in Fort Wayne, IN, but spent the vast majority of his early life in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. His mother led him to the Lord as a four year-old boy, as he was very concerned about the guilt of sin and the consequence of hell (as well as the threat of a nuclear war with Russia!). He was drawn into pastoral work as a sixth grade boy, but as a teenager he became focused on business and went to a state college in central Minnesota to pursue that direction. During his freshman year of college, God began to change his heart as he was able to lead a few dorm mates to the Lord and see one get baptized. As a result, Micah surrendered to the ministry in 1995 and went to Bible college that fall.
God graciously led his wife Jenny to attend the same college, and they were married the summer before his final year. Together, they have enjoyed serving the Lord for over 20 years. They have seven amazing children (four boys and three girls). A turning point in his life occurred when he and his wife (to be) were in a snow mobile accident in Northern Minnesota. The accident nearly took his life and resulted in a fracture of two of his vertebrae. He is an incessant home remodeler and has a quirky interest in real estate. He loves spending time with his wife and kids and has learned to convince himself that he enjoys running.
Before coming to Falls Baptist Church, Micah was on staff at Maranatha Baptist Bible College for a year and a half. He is part of the pastoral team at Falls Baptist Church, overseeing outreach and development. In the college he is the Director of Student Affairs, working alongside the deans and leading the student fellowships.
He is personally blessed to see God change lives through small group Sunday School at Falls Baptist Church and believes that the multiplication of disciples of Christ through discovery Bible study can turn this country upside down. He strongly believes that God is still doing mighty miracles in our midst and is convinced that believing prayer – both individually through a daily Hour With God and corporately – is the indispensable tool put into our hands by the Savior to advance the kingdom in this harvest age. My personal passion is to see each BCM student know these realities during their training for future ministry and leadership.
