Pastor Mike’s relationship with Calvary began in 2005 as a ministry intern. A Staten Island native, he first sensed God’s call to pastoral ministry in NYC as a teen; by God’s grace, this calling became a reality upon joining CBC’s staff in 2007 as the Pastor of Young Adult Ministries and since the Fall of 2015 as the Executive Pastor. His greatest joy in ministry is seeing lives transformed by the power of the Gospel, and he feels honored to be serving at Calvary for such a time as this.
Pastor Mike received his theological and pastoral training at Word of Life Bible Institute, Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary, and Drew University and was ordained to the pastorate at Calvary in 2009. He has also taught as an Adjunct Lecturer at Brooklyn’s St. Francis College in their Religious Studies Department.
Pastor Mike's interests include reading about history, theology, and pastoral leadership, as well as golfing and biking with his friends and family. He is also an avid NY Giants fan.
Pastor Mike and his wife, Mandy, have been married since 2003 and have two sons, Anthony and Isaiah.
