About the speaker: A native of Baltimore, Maryland, and a graduate of the University of Michigan, Mike spent four years teaching English in Japan and then nearly 20 years as a pastor. After realizing he could no longer affirm the dogmas of religion, Mike came out as a nonbeliever on MSNBC’s “UP With Chris Hays” in March 2012. After that, Mike and some others in Houston began to wonder if they could form a new kind of secular organization that would provide the benefits of living in community but without the dogmas and supernaturalism of religion. In September 2012, Houston Oasis was launched and it has been meeting and growing ever since. Mike’s work with Houston Oasis was the subject of an article in TIME magazine in August 2014.

Mike is the father of two grown children. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, reading, and studying foreign languages.
