Michael is also a team leader and advisory member for Randy Clark's Global Awakening, and has been in ministry for forty years. He has recently authored "The Adventure of Supernatural Discovery." Although he had been in the moves of the Holy Spirit during the past few decades along side such as John Wimber, nothing prepared him for what happened to him on a ministry trip in Brazil. Several encounters with the reality of the fire and power of God and being taken to the presence of the Father in Heaven has changed the course and direction of his life and ministry forever. One of the remarkable results of these encounters has been the release of a gifting for impartation, healing and empowerment.
