Children: Jeremiah.

Mike’s Journey:

I grew up in a Christian family; my elder sister was the first to know our Lord Jesus Christ. I was five years old then. In 1987 the whole family accepted Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. I was 15 years old. Eight years later my father received the calling to be a Pastor. In 2001 after I graduated from high school I decided to follow my father’s footsteps and enroll at Evangel Bible College in Daraga, Albay.

My pastoral ministry started when I was 18 in my home church at San Andres, Catanduanes. I pursued my Bachelor in Christian Ministry major in Pastoral Leadership at Bethel Bible College, Malinta, Valenzuela City and successfully finished in 2006.
