Mike was born and raised in the small country town of Chinchilla in Queensland. He first responded to God’s call to follow Jesus when he was 13 years old at a mission-focused holiday camp. Mike now lives in Brisbane and is preparing to join the cross-cultural team serving among the B.I and S.I people of South East Asia.
Mike loves people. He loves going on bushwalks with people and drinking good coffee with them. He loves hearing what is going on others’ lives and sharing what he is learning with them. Mike has also found that he has a particular love for the people of South East Asia. He is convinced that God loves them and is already actively at work among them.
Mike has recently completed a Bachelor of Theology and will continue postgraduate studies in English teaching (TESOL). Until recently, Mike worked as a disability support worker. Mike is now looking for work as an English teacher to help prepare him for his future work in South East Asia. Mike is excited to partner with what God is already doing among the B.I and S.I people and seeing them empowered to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus.
