PASTOR - Mickey Best
Alright, here's the formal stuff first...I graduated Wheaton College with a B.A. in Biblical Studies and the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary with a M .Div. in Pastoral Ministry. Before we felt led to Madison to start Point of Grace, I was the youth pastor of First Assembly of God in Waupaca, Wisconsin for five years and we enjoyed a very warm and fruitful ministry there. The Wisconsin and Northern Michigan District of the Assemblies of God has provided...more.
great training, support, and accountability for POG.
If you are considering being a part of Point of Grace, the most important thing you should know about me concerns my relationship with Christ. Although I was privileged to grow up in a Christian home, I strayed from God during my high school days. He graciously disciplined me and brought me back to himself. In the process, I developed a pretty legalistic and rigid view of God. It was the fall of 1987 when I first came to understand his amazing goodness and grace. I'll spare you the details here but I'd love to talk about it if you ask! Let me just say that I came to realize what a huge difference there is between being religious and having a genuine, intimate, faith-filled relationship with God. Such a friendship with him is possible and absolutely life changing.
Besides a growing love for Jesus and a passion for his Church, I love my wife, Diane, and our three adult children: Brandon, Colton & Kailey. I also enjoy sports, history and eating. So if you ever want to talk about the Packers, kids, or the Civil War over lunch, I'm game.
Thanks for reading.
