Our Pastors

Pastor Mike

Pastor Mike grew up on his grandparent’s dairy farm in Pennsylvania. After turning eighteen, he served in the United States Air Force where he came to know the Lord through reading a Gideon New Testament given him in basic training. During his service in the USAF he met and married Susan who was in nurse training in Oklahoma. Mike and Susan have been married for 45 years and have two children and four grandchildren. He has served in ministry both as a missionary pastor, teacher, and a counselor for many years both at home and on the mission field in Europe.


Mike is a graduate of Liberty University and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and has additional training in a number of specialized areas of counseling. He is licensed in Virginia as a Professional Counselor and also as a Marriage and Family Therapist.


Mike and Susan joined HBC in 1987, and they have served for most of that time in leadership roles. In addition to a busy counseling caseload, he also trains a team of caregivers and facilitates the formation of care groups in the church. His ministry also includes regularly scheduled trips overseas to counsel missionaries.
