Meet the Staff
When we start talking about staff, it’s a strange deal (insert your own jokes here). At Banner, like all healthy churches, it’s really the church family as a whole that makes things happen; those men, women, and children who give countless hours of their time to see that our ministries meet the needs of our community and congregation. So, browsing our staff page is like looking at the tip of an iceberg to see what you’ve got. Our ministry leaders are the heartbeat of what we do as a congregation and our staff serves to encourage and resource them. If you’ve got questions about how or why things happen we can help.

His passion is shepherding God’s people to walk in faithfulness and understanding of the Word of God. He loves talking with those who are curious about God encouraging them to seek a personal relationship with Christ.
At Play: Mike enjoys sitting at any one of the area coffee shops with his laptop, connecting with people or studying a favorite passage of scripture with online resources. He also likes doing home and yard projects with his wife, Lynne and is a hapless, but faithful follower of the Chicago Cubs.
