For 28 years Mike Fleischmann has been joyfully married to the love of his life, Kimberly Marie, and they have two exceptional young adult children – Tucker and Taylor. They have ministered in Wyoming, Oklahoma, Southern California, and Oregon – but now call Denver, Colorado home. They are an always-active couple that has devoted most all of their life together leading churches and serving people, with a special heart for those who find themselves searching for God but disconnected from religion.
Mike earned his Doctorate from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, including researching the conversions of thousands of individuals, with special focus on those who came to faith out of unchurched backgrounds. He earned a Master of Divinity in Expositional Ministry from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon and a Bachelor Degree in Management from Corban University in Salem, Oregon.
After 23 years of pastoral ministry, Mike now serves the Vice President of Personnel for Missions Door, a global organization that takes the hope and help of the Gospel to the lost and least through planting missional churches and empowering indigenous leaders. He has spoken at conferences and churches across the country, trained Christian leaders around the globe, and served as a professor of theology and evangelism at Western Seminary and Corban University.
Mike is a writer who has been featured in a number of leading Christian publications including Leadership Journal, Discipleship Journal, PreachingToday.com and ChristianityToday.com.
Mike is passionate about the concepts of personal growth, organizational leadership, and maximizing impact in evangelistic outreach and mission. His eyes light up when he has the opportunity to help people see God’s truth with fresh eyes and their own potential without limitations.
“What I love about growing to be more like Jesus is how it is the great equalizer for all of us. Every single one of us has exactly one next step to take in our journey of faith. Whether we are just starting out or have been traveling this road for a long time, every day the question facing all of us is the same: ‘Am I willing to take the next step?'”
