A NATIONAL LEADER
Pastor Mike is the immediate past chairman of the SBC Executive Committee. He was a member of the Presidential Search Committee in 2018-2019. Pastor Mike has served the SBC on the Resolutions Committee and the Credentials Committee. He recently chaired the Executive Committee’s ERLC Study Task Force. Pastor Mike is a member of the national steering council of the Conservative Baptist Network.
A STATE LEADER
Pastor Mike is a trusted leader among Georgia Baptists, one of the largest state conventions in the SBC. A past president and Executive Committee chairman of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board, Pastor Mike appointed committees to study the state’s educational institutions and the long-range health of the Cooperative Program in Georgia.
A LOCAL LEADER
Although he has been trusted with places of national leadership, Pastor Mike is first and foremost the leader of a local church. Preaching sermons, counseling members, directing staff, and visiting the sick are just a few of the things that characterize nearly 25 years of leadership in the same small-town congregation.
