Welcome to Spring!!! Well it's at least meteorological spring in any case as we enter into the time of year where the sunshine really starts to have an effect on the northern hemisphere, which we call home. Thought it may not feel like it, we know that the cold can't last forever as the unrelenting warmth of the sun eventually transforms this arctic tundra into the green grass, colorful flowers, warm winds and gentle showers that we are so looking forward too! There's something fitting about this winter as we move through the season of Lent and the more intentional focus of Jesus ultimate mission, suffering and life giving resurrection as he moves to Calvary for you and me.
Special thanks to all the folks in Florida who came out to share in the concerts and special worship services. It was a privilege to be with you and to hear so many of your stories and to see your love for Jesus! Special thanks to Peace Lutheran in Lakeland, New Life Lutheran in Sebring, The One Way Cafe and Hope Lutheran in West Palm Beach!
As we move through this season I wanted to share with you a chapel that I was able to be a part of at Wisconsin Lutheran High School called "Who Will Help You Stand". It's a key part of what campus ministry longs to be a part of in people's lives as they transition through one of the biggest identity shifts we experience as human beings. It is important to understand as students, young people, parents, older generations and the church. I hope you might take the 20 minutes to watch it and please share it with other. You can find a link to the Wisco chapel here.
Booking now for 2014
I love being part of sharing the story and using God's word to awaken us to the joy of walking with Jesus in our realities. If there is a way that I can serve your church, whether it's part of an outreach/service project, special worship service or just a chance to rally people together to be encouraged for Jesus sake, we look forward to partnering with you in 2014.
New CD coming in 2014
We are in the process of recording the latest CD project, tentatively called "Songs we Carry Vol. 1). This is tentatively to be a 7 track EP with 4 of the 7 tracks already done and 4 more at various stages of production. We will be announcing a fund raiser campaign to give people an opportunity to support and even sponsor this project as we bring some of these songs to life. We hope to announce the fund raiser in the next month or so and I would hope that the CD will be coming by the end of summer. God knows the timing of it so we're praying over that. If you want to learn more and would want to contribute directly to recording this project, send me a personal email to email@example.com

Support Campus Ministry
Mike is part of the ministry team at The Point of Grace, the campus ministry of the WELS in Milwaukee. It has been an exciting and challenging time at TPOG as we continue to develop a new model for campus ministry. There have been some awesome experiences and growth, there are some pressing needs and a desire for greater partnership with our churches and supporters as we help these students not only walk through the challenges of Christian life on secular campuses, but also empower them to love the people on their campuses for Jesus sake. Would you be willing to help us make God's faithfulness known on Campus? Check out the support section of TPOG and take a minute to watch the video to get caught up.
Mike and St. Paul's Muskego
Mike has been helping lead worship at St. Paul's Lutheran in Muskego, WI for the past couple of years and has been able to help the church launch a new modern worship setting called "The Bridge" as well as leading worship once a month at the 11am contemporary service. This has been an exciting venture and God has blessed the startup of the new worship environment as we hope to communicate the peace and joy that comes from a fuller understanding of the Gospel message. If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to St. Paul's some weekend!
Thanks for stopping by the website today. If you have time, check out some of the new booking options for 2014. We would love to help you share God's faithfulness in your churches and in your communities! How can we serve with you?
