Hi, I'm Mike!

20 years ago, I planted a brand new church in Ripon, WI.  We began with just my family, and a dream to help people who have been turned off by church but not by God. By His grace, over 2000 people have since called it their church home.

Helping people find power in their faith is my passion. Teaching people to then use that power to have better lives and become influential leaders is my mission. 

I love my family, bass fishing, scuba diving and comedians. I have to also mention that I am a huge fan of the Milwaukee Bucks and the Green Bay Packers!

Like a lot of people, I have made a bucket list

  • Go whitewater rafting in Colorado... Done!
  • Go scuba diving... Done many times now!
  • Go surfing... Done and I loved that too!
  • Catch a 10lb. bass... This was on my list for 30 years and I am happy to say... DONE!
  • Go on an African Safari... Still waiting on this one.

I am straightforward, transparent, experienced and motivated to use how God has crafted me to inspire, coach and mentor others who have decided to make their faith an active part of their lives. I consider this an immense privilege and I am thrilled to share what I have learned.

Hi, I'm Arica

As a pastor, I have walked with people through pain, triumph, and so many highs and lows of life. 

Helping people discover the love and the grace of God is such an honor. 

I enjoy being able to help individuals overcome the difficulties of life, and give them the guidance and push they need in order to transform in ways they never knew were possible.

I have walked through many hard times in my life and through it all, I have learned that faith is not freedom from the storms, but faith allows us to have peace within the storms.  God has helped me overcome and be truly happy in spite of what life has thrown my way. I know for sure that God has called me to help others do the same.

You are loved more than you can imagine. And you were created for a purpose that only you can fulfill.

I am honest and straightforward. I will ask you questions and tell you things no one else would dare to say.  I love being a mama to my 4 amazing kids, Sunday naps, delicious food and cold beer.

Let's chat and see if we are a good fit for one another.
