My name is Mike and I was raised in the Methodist Church. I was called to the ministry by the Lord at a church camp on Lake Geneva, 1959. I attended Illinois Wesleyan University and was student pastor of the Dawson, IL United Methodist Church in 1964. I held a Methodist License to Preach then. At age 35, the Lord called me into full time Hospital Chaplain work. I attended Oral Roberts University Graduate School of Theology and earned my Master of Divinity Degree there. While in school, I did hospital visitation for the 1st. United Methodist Church in Tulsa, OK. I did 3 Quarters of Clinical Pastoral Education at Hillcrest Hospital in Tulsa, OK and 1 Quarter of CPE at Bethesda Psychiatric Hospital in Denver, CO. During that time, I did the weekend hospital calling for Denver First Church of the Nazarene. I was then hired as a Prayer Partner (Chaplain) at Oral Roberts City of Faith Hospital in Tulsa, OK. Since then, I have done hospital calling for any church I was a member of. Being with people going through illness, mental anguish, severe pain as those in a Hospital Burn Unit, those who are terminally ill, and their families is the ministry I have been called to do and I do it well. I praise the Lord that He has worked through me to bring comfort and hope and peace to other people, Christian or not in their time of trial. I have officiated at weddings and funerals over the years. At the present time, I am a member of the Church of the Nazarene in Woodland Park, CO.
