The heartbeat for this ministry is found in three places in scripture. John 10:10, Psalm 89:1-8, and the book of Ephesians, specifically Ephesians 3:14-21, the combination of which may be summed into the simple prayer:
Lord, make me AWAKE to who I am in Jesus, make me ALIVE to living out this identity and reality in my every day life, with the purpose of bringing one more person closer to you!
As a touring artist, Mike also takes the message of Awake and Alive on the road for churches and conferences who have a heart for this prayer and a desire to encourage the faith life of the "generations".
