“One great shortage we have here in the Northwest is quality speakers and worship leaders that communicate the Gospel effectively to teens and college students.  [Mike and Debbie] will be a great asset to Northwest churches and youth and collegiate groups who are desiring to evangelize and disciple this new generation.  They both have servants’ hearts and a genuine love for the Lord and young people. If you’re also looking for a strong worship team that are both gifted and committed, consider Mike and Debbie.”

– Danny Kuykendall, Youth Ministry Strategist, Northwest Baptist Convention

“Mike has a heart for ministry, a contagious love for God, and a tremendous gift for communication that will be an asset to any church.  I wholeheartedly recommend him to you.”

– Gary Nicholson, Mike’s former youth minister and now church architect.

“My wife and I are so very thankful for Simplicity Ministries®. I know many Christian parents pray for their children and their walk with the Lord as they grow into adulthood; my wife and I are no different.

Although a Christian at an early age, raised in a homeschooled Christian home and active in church, my son Chris appeared to have a “going through the motions” spiritual mentality. All that changed when he (reluctantly) attended his first and, due to his age, last winter church retreat. Mike was the guest speaker that weekend and his insightful preaching into the book of Malachi spoke volumes to my son. Chris returned home spiritually renewed, energized and focused on Christ. His desire to then lead out in teaching two of his friends was truly a blessing to us.

Since that winter retreat 3 years ago, Chris has continued to grow in the Lord and has recently returned from a mission trip to Africa with Simplicity Ministries®. We will forever be grateful for Mike’s dedication to Christ and the mission set before him.”
