Michael, with his wife, Susan, leapt at the opportunity to organize a new Resurrection Brooklyn congregation in Brooklyn Heights. They are working to help build and shape a community that is thoughtfully and intentionally invested in Brooklyn—a church for its community that shares its hopes, needs, and questions.
Michael, an ordained Presbyterian minister, holds a graduate degree in theology and served for nearly a decade at Grace Church Seattle. He is a fan of eating good meals, running long distances, and reading.
Michael and Susan have two little boys and live, work, and play in Brooklyn Heights.
They are excited to see a new church start in this neighborhood. Serving with others, they hope to build a community that offers and enjoys friendship, provides an opportunity for others to ask real and hard questions about life and God, experiences individual and corporate transformations, and makes Brooklyn a better place.
