I am so grateful to so many at Mariners Church in Irvine, CA that have supported our ministry over the years. God-led leaders like Tim Lukei and Eric Heard have provided invaluable feedback that has helped to shape all our curriculum. Over 600 men at Mariner’s Church, Irvine have completed Rescuing the Rogue.
When the COVID 19 pandemic began to shut down most of the country, Tim tasked us with developing a group study curriculum to help his men stay spiritually grounded. We recruited a few experienced leaders, most notably Frank Casco, Henry Kim, Sam Peterson and Sean Stier, who during the pandemic faithfully led men through Zoom meetings of the initial draft of Transformational Life. Tim’s vision, the leadership of these men and the platform of Mariners Church all made this book possible.
Men of Mariners exist to inspire men to follow Jesus and fearless change the world. We don’t have all the answers, and none of us are perfect, but we are about encouraging the men of Orange County to follow Jesus Christ in every aspect of their lives; challenging each to be a man of God in his home, workplace, church and world. The Men’s Ministry connects men with God and with other events, life groups, bible studies, sports and retreats.
I’ve had the privilege to work with Michael and Strong Fathers, Strong Families for over 20 years. We’ve crisscrossed the US developing responsible fatherhood programs, presenting/hosting conferences, and writing curriculum that continues to transform relationships between fathers and their children. It is an honor to count him as one of my closest friends.
Michael has worked with over 200,000 fathers and professionals in 45 states and a couple of languages. Using his vast experience as an educator, speaker, and thought leader, he can provide the right training for your school or organization.
Michael works with fathers and families every week. He has the expertise to help your staff better understand how to better reach fathers and families for the sake of improved child outcomes. In half-day or full day workshops he can educate and motivate your staff and entire organization to tap into the strengths of both moms and dads in your family engagement efforts. If you are interested, we can set up a phone call to talk about your needs and calendar opportunities.

American Association of Christian Counselors
I have been a member of AACC for over 10 years, and privilege to present workshops their national and international conferences. AACC is second to none when it comes to assisting Christian counselors, the entire “community of care,” licensed professionals, pastors, and lay church members with little or no formal training. It is their intention to equip clinical, pastoral, and lay care-givers with biblical truth and psychosocial insights that minister to hurting persons and helps them move to personal wholeness, interpersonal competence, mental stability, and spiritual maturity.
