Personal Information

Mike holds a degree in mathematics and a graduate degree in education. He has been involved in creation ministry for more than twenty five years. Prior to getting involved in creation ministry, Mike was a captain in the U.S. Marines and a national champion in track and field.

Mike’s teaching experience includes high school mathematics, the Northwest Graduate School of Ministry, Sunday school classes, and the Institute for Creation Research graduate school. Mike also spent over 20 years in the computer field where he managed U.S. Sprint’s world-wide technical training and Microsoft’s world-wide engineer training.

Mike’s area of specialty is in education and biblical apologetics. His extensive background in the education field (schools, churches, and in industry) have equipped him to train others how to teach and speak on the topic of creation.

Because of Mike’s background in education and the U.S. Marines, he is able to present dynamic and attention-grabbing lectures to youth of all ages (grade school through college). Mike has also been a presenter at major home school conventions, patriotic conferences, and in Christian and public schools.

Mike and his wife Lesley travel worldwide as a team for Answers in Genesis. They have two children and four “very cute” grandchildren.
