Michael grew up in Florence, South Carolina. He has served in churches in both Florence and Greenville. He began his role as our Student Minister here in August 2017.
He received a BA in Student Ministry from North Greenville University in Tigerville, SC. There, he felt confirmed that God had placed a calling on his life to minister to students. His desire is for teenagers to grow to love the Lord with all of their “heart, soul, mind, and strength” as scripture teaches, and make their relationship with the Lord the most important focus in their lives.
Michael enjoys reading, fishing, watching college football and hanging out with students. Most importantly, he enjoys seeing students grow spiritually and become disciple makers as scripture teaches.
Michael married Polly Scott in December of 2019. Polly felt the call for student ministry in high school. She has been an adult volunteer with our students here at Central.
