I live my music in a variety of fashions, most regularly at Lutheran Church of the Cross, West Fargo, ND, where I speak of God through my keys and collaboration with exceptional musicians. I can be found working with musicians and leaders involved in worship settings, designing and leading workshops on music and spirituality, and musically creating spaces to awaken to the ordinary presence of God. I was raised going to a Lutheran church every Sunday morning, listening to radio on the way–it makes sense to me that these two things can be joined together. I’m interested in pointing to the presence of God in all of life and removing the false divisions between sacred and everything else. Michael recently served as the Director of Music and Arts Ministry at Lutheran Church of the Cross, West Fargo, ND, and is now serving at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Olympia, WA. He graduated from the Master of Theological Studies program at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA, where he focused his studies on music as local theology. Prior to his graduate studies, Michael studied psychology, neuroscience, and chemistry at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN.

~Life’s Detours & Road Blocks
Detour ahead. Road closed. Throughout life’s journey, we encounter unexpected turns in direction: illness, loss of loved ones, change of work and opportunity. A loss of direction is disorienting. Together, we will explore this time of transition.
