Mike Newman has served as the MMF for Area C since July of 2008. Before serving the Texas District he served in pastoral ministry since 1987 in congregations in Texas, Illinois, and Minnesota. He has been blessed to be involved in the leadership, development and growth of a mission congregation and has served congregations both large and small. His ministry journey has included participation in multi-ethnic ministry, international mission trips, the planting of new ministries, radio and television ministry, and the writing of books and resources. He and his wife Cindy live in San Antonio and are the parents of two wonderful daughters. His hobbies include squeezing in one or two sprint triathlons each year, reading a few good books, spending time with family, and risking his life doing yard work.
Mike’s personal mission statement: "To vibrantly communicate usable faith in order to ignite the reality of and hunger for Jesus Christ in all people." Mike is excited to assist Area C congregations as they reach out with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The new ministries and church plants resulting from this outreach will be part of the “Mission 200” goal of the Texas District to start 200 new churches and ministries by 2017, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
