“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20
Mike grew up in a military family that lived all over the world. He went to Ole Miss to play football but more significantly Mike met the Lord and his wife Connie through the ministry of Campus Crusade(Cru.). He was discipled by the director of the ministry and challenged to go on staff with Athletes in Action (AIA) where he served for 12 years at the University of South Carolina. Mike first came to Christ Covenant in 1993 as Pastor of Singles/College and Local Outreach. In 2000 the Millers were called to plant a new church in North Palm Beach, Florida, where they served for 11 years before returning to Christ Covenant. Mike was able to pursue his MDiv degree at the RTS campuses in both Charlotte and Orlando. He was ordained as a Teaching Elder in 2006 in the South Florida Presbytery (PCA).
Mike’s range of ministry responsibilities includes shepherding alongside a team of elders and deacons one of the many communities at Christ Covenant in congregational care, assisting and leading our church in church planting efforts around the world, overseeing our internship program with other pastors, and tending to the challenges of missions on every continent as well as our own region with its diverse needs. God continues to equip him for Christ Covenant’s growth as he trains leaders in our congregation, mentors our church planters and encourages our missionaries. He also serves on the Presbytery Missions Committee and on a new church planting commission team of South Charlotte PCA in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte.
Connie and Mike truly love to travel and serve together as they minister to younger pastors and their families and individuals they are connected to around the world.
Mike’s relaxation is love of fixing things, whether cars or doing projects in the house or woodworking. He and Connie enjoy the outdoors and as much family time as they can get especially with their two young grandsons. Mike is also an avid college football fan.
Mike and Connie have three adult children: Mary Sha who is a Clinician/nurse living in Nashville; Catie is a public school teacher in the local school district; son Mike and his wife Megan live in College Park, Maryland where Mike is an assistant football coach at the University of Maryland.
