Mike was brought up as a Christian, and when he was nine the Lord first placed the desire in his heart to be a minister. In 1989 he had a life-changing experience when a travelling minister imparted a healing ministry to him through the laying on of hands. Since then he has been blessed to minister across the globe as a Minister of the Gospel. His specialty is the ability to lead the church in spontaneous praise and worship, prophetically minstrelling among a congregation, releasing the anointing for healing and equipping the saints into their spiritual and motivational giftings. Mike believes in the power of praise. He believes as we praise our Lord breakthrough occurs. Breakthrough in healing of the body as well as mind, will and emotions, relationships, finances, intimacy with the Lord, salvation and every other area of human struggles and inadequacy. When he has ministered, he has witnessed non-believers ask how to become a Christian, and accept the Lord as their Saviour through the power of praise, without them having even heard the salvation message preached (Psalm 40:3). He has sung the song of the Lord and prophesied and seen healing for cancer, stomach disorders, diabetes, broken relationships, and breakthroughs in emotional areas like depression.
