About Me

Hello, I am Michael Young: Pastor • Teacher • Counselor.

I am eager to continue my calling as a pastor and use my gifts to inspire others by preaching God’s Word, encouraging others to share the Gospel through outreach and evangelism, and maturing them to life-long relationships with God and others through love and discipleship that will bring a desire to make our church their home.

MY Unique Accomplishments

Some Highlights …

CafeChurch church icon

Built a ministry center as a restaurant in a shopping center. The restaurant meeting room was used during the day by the community and after hours ministry programs. We closed on Sunday and had worship in the dining room of the restaurant. Ministry took place everyday with people who encountered God for the first time.

Adventure Camp

Michael Young Campfire Icon

 I have served as Executive Director for two Christian camps (Camp Christian and Shiloh Adventure Camp). I restructured and developed them to breathe new life into the programs and to minister more effectively in their communities. I completely built and staffed Shiloh Adventure camp and had 120 kids our first summer.

Key Shop

Created a children’s program that brought together children from 5 school districts and home schoolers. I wrote a weekly script for this unique program that taught Biblical truth through drama, puppets, and small groups with a  challenge for each episode to apply what was learned. This also reduced the volunteers needed for the Wednesday Night program.


Books Michael Young

Wrote and published a guide for devotions titled In His Words: 31 Days of Scriptural Prayer, focusing on praying scripture back to God and covering 8 areas of prayer as Jesus taught. (Available on Amazon) Wrote Children’s Book, There’s A Thing In My Closet! Illustrated by Rick Ellis. It teaches children to clean their rooms and take care of the things God has provided for them

What Has Been Said About Me …


 Michael is an amazing pastor! I have been a Christian for over 20 years. When he teaches or preaches I think to myself why hasn’t anyone ever taught me this  before! I learn so much from him

Even though I am in my 70’s, Michael discipled my wife and me. He encouraged us to follow our heart and accomplish what God wanted us to do. We are happy we did!

Jerry Albert



 I received a phone call from the school my son attended. He was with the school counselor and threatening to harm himself. I called Michael, and he met with my son. After some counseling, my relationship with my son improved and my son has a promising future. I fully support Michael’s ministry.
