Despite being married with children and owning his own construction business, Mike still struggled to overcome his own life controlling addictions. He eventually went to Teen Challenge in Philadelphia, PA, where God drasticaly changed his life forever. A few years after TC, Mike, Denise and their family, moved and began serving full time on staff with TC in Cape Girardeau, MO. A few years later, Mike and Denise moved to Brookings, SD to serve together on staff. They've been leading the TCD ministry now for the past 18 years.
