Michael is a 2017 USA High School grad. He attended Central Michigan University where he received a degree in Sports Management as well as played for their basketball team. It was there he met his wife, Lindsey. Lindsey graduated from Reed City High school in 2016 and received a degree in Exercise Science and Child Development at CMU. The two found themselves back in Michael’s hometown, Sebewaing, MI, after getting married in the middle of the Covid lockdown. Michael worked for his dad's tiling company while Lindsey worked in autism therapy for a year until they felt called to the YFC ministry. Between YFC and Trinity United Methodist Church, a local church in the Sebewaing area, the two would be able to do ministry together as a couple. Shortly after this job transition, they welcomed their daughter, Leah into the world. She is now a little over 9 months old and a huge blessing in their lives. They also are excitedly awaiting the arrival of their second child this upcoming December. They love serving their area and have huge hearts for all of the kids in their community.
