Mike and his wife, Erin, were married in 2006 and have two children, Mia and Evan, who keep the family busy with sports, theater, and piano.

Gregarious and funny, Mike always keeps everyone laughing and enjoying life. His passion for teaching God’s Word to the children and youth motivates him daily, and he brings with him energy and a love for Christ.

One of Erin’s passions is writing and she enjoys writing the puppet script for the Lads to the Leaders program and creating scenes and props for the production. Teaching children the Bible through mediums such as games, crafts, and puppets energizes Erin to continue to use creativity and the love of Scripture to help each child learn.
Michelle has been a lifelong servant of the church and has been teaching children’s Bible classes since she was 16 years old. She and her husband, Gary, who serves as the pulpit preacher at Mountain Creek, have 3 wonderful children: Lauren, Elizabeth and Mark. Michelle stays busy taking care of her family, farm, and home, but also enjoys reading, traveling, and entertaining guests with her delicious cooking and hospitality! Known for her compassion and love of children, one of Michelle’s favorite ways to teach is through songs and repetition. Children build a strong Biblical foundation in Michelle’s class learning Books of the Old and New Testaments, Bible verses, and people of the Bible. Michelle is passionate about helping children learn the Word of God and fully embodies the desire taught in Judges 2:10, as she never wants there to be a generation who does not know God.
