Pastor Mike has been with Bethel Church since he was a young boy, and is where he met his wife, Lisa. At the age of 16, he was called by the Lord to preach the Gospel. When his oldest daughter was about to start kindergarten, Pastor Mike was led to open up a Christian private school through Bethel. The school was open from 1994-2008 when Pastor Mike felt he was being sent in a direction other than the school. As he prayed and fasted over the matter, the Lord then led him to start his very first Watchman Video Broadcast in the year 2009 which was the beginning of Prophetic Research Ministries of Bethel Church.
