Roger recently said, “I thought C12 sounded like a good idea in 2005 when I began to explore the possibility of leading the Detroit franchise.   Now after being involved for some time, I find that it is better than I thought and gets better every month.”

Roger and his wife Cheryl reside in Waterford, Michigan.  They have five children in four states.  They raised three daughters who all graduated from Christian Colleges and serve the Lord in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Colorado. Their two sons serve the Lord in their church as they make their way into young adulthood.  One in the Army Reserves and College the other in the family business.

    With a background spanning Fortune 50 corporate settings, startups, non-profit and local church, Mike has been discipled into an integrated life perspective around the calling all believers share to be disciple-making disciples and ambassadors of Christ across all vocations and contexts.  It was in 2005 when God revealed to Mike the perils of a “sacred versus secular” duality in life and since then he’s been on the adventure of living one life in Christ, with work as worship, business as ministry and life as mission.

    Mike grew up in Alaska, graduated from Trinity International University and the Loyola Graduate School of Business.  He married his bijou of an Iowa farmers daughter, Jacqui, in 2002 and they have 2 girls, Elayna and Sophia.
