Father Michael is a proud native of Lexington, Kentucky, where he attended the University of Kentucky earning his bachelor’s degree. Subsequently, he earned master of religious education and master of divinity degrees from Nazarene Theological Seminary. He earned a doctor of ministry degree from Asbury Theological Seminary with special emphasis on pastoral leadership and growth strategies for the 21st century.

In 1987 he received a presidential appointment to serve our nation’s interests as a military chaplain – first entering the United States Army Chaplain Corps, and then in 1998, he began as a chaplain in the United States Air Force. He counts it a privilege to have provided spiritual care and guidance to military service members and their families. He retired from the active duty ranks in 2010 with nearly 30 years of distinguished military service.

Father Michael is passionate about youth ministry and continues to promote the critical need to prioritize dynamic youth ministries. He is married to the Rev. Becky Tinnon; they were jointly ordained in the Episcopal Church in 2008. They have three grown children – Brad, Ashley, and John, three grandchildren and a people-loving dog named Riley.
