Michael grew up in the United Kingdom, mostly in the south east around London, but has also spent time living in Scotland and Northern Ireland. He has a BA in Theology, Missions and Ministry from Durham University in England, and has been in ministry since 2007. He first served in a church on the outskirts of London for two years doing an internship with a focus on youth ministry, (amongst many other things), and then spent five years working as a missionary first in London and then in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He relocated to the greater Princeton area four years ago and has served in short term roles in two churches, focusing on outreach and youth and children’s ministry, as well as working as Sports and Youth Director at the Princeton YMCA, before coming to Stone Hill.
At Stone Hill, he serves as Youth Director, overseeing middle school and high school ministries, and he is very excited to be a part of the church, as it is actively seeking to influence the community around it for the sake of the gospel.
Michael has been married for seven years to his wife Katie who was born and raised around Princeton, their first child is due in September 2018 and in his free time, he likes going for long walks, playing and watching soccer, eating chicken wings, reading, and watching movies.
