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.
