Mitch grew up at "Exciting" Eastwood Baptist Church of Tulsa when it was one of the 10 fastest growing churches in the USA. He served in Eastwood's bus ministry at various times as Associate, Evangelist, and Bus Ministry/Children's Pastor for over thirty bus crews / over 1000 riders starting his service at the age of 14. While attending the University of Wyoming on a wrestling scholarship, Mitch was active serving in mission outreach with the UW Baptist Student Union as well as leading worship at Trinity Baptist Church. Mitch was also part of a core group that chartered a new church plant in Wyoming. Returning home one summer, Mitch met a girl named Karen in Sunday school and never made it back to Wyoming. They wed in the course of time and started what would become a family of eight; 2 girls, 4 boys and 2 crazy parents. Using his vocal music degree from the University of Tulsa, Mitch served on the Southern Baptist, North American Mission Board as Trustee and for the past 9 years, Mitch has served as Children's pastor here at FBC Sapulpa with an amazing team of associates. Our goal is to help kids pass "from innocence to eternal life".
