In 2007, Michael founded the Center for Christ & Culture where his popular weekly commentaries grew to reach more than a million readers each week through Crosswalk.com, Christianity.com, The Christian Post and numerous other web-based outlets. In 2009, Michael authored his critically-acclaimed book, Uncompromised Faith: Overcoming Our Culturalized Christianity (NavPress).

Prior to joining The Colson Center, Michael served for five years as the president of BridgeBuilders, an inner-city ministry in South Dallas, where he pioneered a missional strategy for transforming the “culture of poverty,” thereby breaking the cycle of poverty that dominates so many of America’s inner-city communities.
