Rev. Mike was an at-risk teenager whose life was radically changed through the tireless efforts of some amazing volunteers who ran a youth program near his home in rural Canada. As a result of their dreams and efforts, Mike would say that he found his purpose in life and was uniquely inspired to start and lead an event that would eventually be called YC. An event which ultimately would be attended by hundreds of thousands of teenagers across the nation. Mike currently leads as the senior pastor at Evangel Assembly in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Mike is also the founder of a non-profit organization called Extreme Dream Ministries and serves as the Executive Director in a volunteer capacity.
