Marriage and Family Counseling Center Founder Brother Mike

It all began with a prayer in May 1987. “Lord, please use the mess I have made with my life to help others.” Across the next 8 years, God delivered me from many years of bondage to numerous destructive things, such as: anger, alcohol and many failed relationships. But being delivered was only half of the process. Yes, I was free from the past, but I needed to learn to live life on God’s terms. Learning to be a man, husband, father, brother, son, neighbor, friend, employee, etc. of faith required learning God’s Word, but also depending on the Holy Spirit to apply God’s Word. It was a challenging season, but one that was necessary for God to use me to start and lead a non-profit Biblical Counseling ministry. God hasn’t wasted anything I experienced, before I knew Him or since.
