His heart comes fully alive studying God’s Word and
journeying with fellow warriors. Michael is deeply
convicted that God has designed man with an imbedded
need for Kavode (glory). If this “glory” is found
through fierce dependency on Jesus… they will be great
leaders in their homes, community and their spheres of
He is committed to working out this dependency first in
his own home with his best friend and “Queen”, Leah, and
their three children (1 Timothy 3:12). He desires his
life to bring glory to his King alone and to be a
testimony of His love, His strength and His honor in the
lives of today’s man.
