Mike with his wife, Amber and four daughters
Before answering Gods call on Michael’s life, he was hopelessly addicted to life destroying drugs for nearly a decade. After entering into a Christian Recovery Center, Michael encountered the powerful love of Jesus. All of his chains of addiction were finally broken. Following his completion of the program, God called Michael to school, where he met his wife Amber Thornton. In May of 2007, both Amber and Michael graduated from Heritage Bible College and continued to further their education at Regent University.
During this time, God began to stir in Michael’s heart the flames of revival. God quickly opened some amazing doors, and Michael was able to share his story amongst different denominations and races. His testimony was even featured on the 700 Club. Continuing to follow the call for a national and global spiritual awakening, the Lord led Michael to re-dig the ancient wells of revival in North Carolina. Fruit from this assignment has lead to his first book–Fire in the Carolinas: The Lasting Legacy of G.B. Cashwell and A.B. Crumpler. This work has also led to a great hunger and passion to see the Southern United States lead the nation in a global healing revival between the races and churches.
In May 2012, Michael received a Masters degree in Public Administration/Non-profit Organizations, and Amber received two Masters degrees: Practical Theology/Christian Counseling. In addition, God has blessed the Thornton’s with four beautiful girls: Jordan, Abigail, Briella, and Bethany.
