Michael has been on staff since 2010 and has a passion for helping others become champions for Columbus’ inner city youth. He oversees development, stewardship, communications, and volunteering. But his favorite role is heading up the Renegade ministry at Harambee every Sunday. Michael is a graduate of The Ohio State University and previously worked in development at OSU’s Fisher College of Business and as a coordinator of mentor programs in Columbus City Schools with Big Brothers Big Sisters. He enjoys reading, pour-over coffee, fitness, and doughnuts. He and his wife, Ruth, have two daughters who look just like him, and together they help lead an adult home church.
