Michael Porter


My name is Mike and I am just beginning my 25th year as the Chaplain/Director for Pastoral Services at Porter Regional Hospital in Valparaiso, Indiana.  I am ordained in the Lutheran Church – now in my 35th year – and Board Certified in APC.  Prior to serving as a Chaplain, I served as a parish Pastor for almost nine years.  I am married for almost 39 years and we have a daughter, a son and two grandsons.

Balancing my personal faith and the faith of others happens daily with me as I visit with people throughout the day.  Through this, my faith has grown beyond the box I had it in.  I am interested in looking at this more though the guided discussions we will share.
