Mike Burton tells the story of how he became a Christ-follower. He would classify himself as a "secular humanist"; logic, science, and rationale were the highest form of all knowledge and reason. In 1999, Mike found it was impossible to overcome the pain of depression and he was encouraged by his brother and others to embrace the Gospel of Jesus. Skeptical at first, Mike ultimately discovered Jesus and the Gospel to be personal and transformational.
Mike and his family reside on a farm in Rogersville. He is on the faculty at Missouri State University in Springfield, MO and worships at Fellowship Bible Church of the Ozarks.
