Michael his wife Jennifer became involved in the Family and Friends part of Living Hope in 2012 when a family member came out to them as gay. The support, encouragement and prayers he received gave him renewed hope and a desire to share the help he had received with others. As much as he valued his participation in the Arlington in-house support group, regular involvement was difficult because he lives quite a distance away. Mike and Jen were instrumental in the founding of the Living Hope Denton satellite, where Michael serves as its volunteer Director.
Michael and Jennifer have served in their local church in a variety of ways over the last 28 years. They have led Bible studies, discipled young couples, done pre-marital coaching, served on a Christian school board and hosted many get-togethers in their home. Michael has coupled his love of mentoring young men with his love of cooking on the grill. Jennifer has served as a leader in Bible Study Fellowship, mentored college girls and young mothers, and has organized meal trains for those hurting/recovering in the church. Living Hope is grateful to be the beneficiary of the energy and talents of this wonderful couple.
