I met Mike about twenty years ago. We were in the beginning stages of launching Two Cities Ministries. We had a wonderful lunch over Chinese food at a quiet place in Washington, DC. Mike was one of the most influential Christian leaders you’ve probably never heard of. He was full of energy, loved people, and was a great raconteur.
Plutarch said “small” things can reveal a man’s character. One thing stands out for me. Though Mike and I hardly knew each other he was always very quick to answer any question I sent him via email.
Through his creativity and tenacity Mike was able to win the trust of journalists across a wide swath of religious and political perspectives, no small feat!
