Michael grew up dreaming of one day being a professional recording artist and songwriter. But God had other plans. He and his wife, Laura, worked as missionaries to college students before Michael sensed a call to urban church planting. This sense of calling grew while Michael was attending the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. The Clary’s made it official by moving to Cincinnati in 2008 to plant Christ the King Church. They live in Uptown with their four kids and dog.
Michael is also the Cincinnati area director for the Acts 29 network. If you are interested in being trained in pastoral ministry or church planting, send Michael an email and he will get back to you with next steps.
