Michael Acker

After years of living in Mexico I moved to the United States where I strongly felt called by God to pursue the pastoral vocation. For five years I worked with Wes Davis & Chad Alvarado in Poulsbo, Wa. leading groups, preaching at events and doing other work while I attended University. Then the day came on my Journey where I launched out and moved to the small towns of Stanwood and Camano. It’s there that I started a youth ministry, became a lead pastor and transitioned a church. After eight and half years, I was asked to lead Citipoint Church in Mount Vernon, Washington. Even though I often lived in small areas, I have been privileged to travel around to do workshops, conferences, speaking in Honduras & Mexico, speaking for other pastors and other miscellaneous events. In all of this my desire is to make the fullness of the life of Jesus known to others; to preach his Life and the victory we have in Him. As we make Him known, follow Him and keep our eyes on Him, we then the experience the journey of life as he intended.

About the author : Mike Acker

Mike Acker

Mike Acker was raised on the Olympic Peninsula until 5th grade when his family made a drastic life change and moved to Mazatlan, Mexico. There his family volunteered with a missions organization called Youth with a Mission. While working with YWAM, they stumbled on a little known truth: many kids who never get started in the education system or leave elementary school find themselves without the ability to continue their schooling. Mike's parents worked endlessly to create a solution. Tim and Maggie Acker created an organization named Hogar de Ayuda (Home of Help) which provided schooling, food, clothing, dental services, health services and home life training. Every Saturday, Sunday and on school vacations, the whole family would be at Hogar de Ayuda and in the outskirts of Mazatlan helping people and teaching them about God's love. Upon finishing school in Mexico, Mike returned to the Olympic Peninsula. He became involved in a student ministry at Christ Memorial Church. There he led dramas, preached, led follow up teams, outreach teams and small group ministry. He enrolled at Northwest University, responding to God's voice to be a pastor. Pastor Mike is a gifted communicator. At Northwest University he participated in their nationally ranked debate team. He traveled extensively with the team going to Nationals in 2001. He speaks at youth camps and conferences. His desire is to communicate the Bible in such a way that captivates his audience with Jesus' character and so they can understand God's voice and apply his guidance to their life.
