About Mike

I am a previous student of Tabor, where I completed my Bachelor of Theology and Master of Theology. Having acquired a fascination with the theologian, Karl Barth, I continued my studies at the University of Otago in Dunedin where I delved in to Barth’s doctrine of sanctification for three years. I have been involved in Pentecostal and Baptist churches and have enjoyed serving in youth and young adults ministries and taking part in vibrant home group discussions.
