Mike Westendorf

Director

Mike has been heavily involved in Campus Ministry in Milwaukee through The Point of Grace for the since 2007.  He has also overseen the day-to-day operations of Innovative Weather, a meteorology internship program with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, working with college students and recent graduates in a 24/7 forecast operation.  Mike has been a professional recording artist for the past 10 years, leading concerts and worship across the country and is a member of the ministry team of his home church St. Paul's Muskego, helping lead worship at "The Bridge"  He also helps lead the "Mile Marker" portion of Time of Grace Ministries, an effort to create conversation around topics young adults care about.

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".  For more information about Mike and his music and concert/worship opportunities, please visit www.mikewestendorf.com.

Jill Dunbar

Co Director

Jill joined the Awake and Alive team in 2016 when she saw firsthand the Christian community and inspiration the summer gatherings provided for our young adults. As a Certified Public Accountant with almost 20 yeas experience in the accounting profession, she brings her organizational and business management skills to the team.

Jill is inspired by the many examples in the Bible of God making the unqualified qualified (2 Corinthians 3: 1-6). She prays that others, especially our young adults, see their unique gifts that God has given them and their potential for serving God and others. She especially loves to connect with our young adults through bi-weekly small groups where she helps facilitate conversations in God's word.

Jill is also a wife, musician, equestrian and dog mom.
