Michael is available for speaking engagements, media interviews, and podcasts. Domestic violence is a massive social issue with profound implications for both victims and those that do harm. It’s likely everyone has either experienced this issue personally or knows someone who has. Domestic violence is also a deeply emotional topic and one Michael feels passionate about. He is eager to share his personal journey of attempting to get help in a flawed system, vision for the Ananias Foundation, and hope for addressing this problem in a way that leaves everyone better off.
The Ananias Foundation’s work makes an engaging topic for secular audiences tuned in to social issues and solutions. Michael can speak to why the present-day batterers’ intervention programs (BIPs) are ineffective and why the Ananias Foundation pursues a radically different approach. Michael’s passion for ending domestic violence by addressing the real source is clear.
For Christian audiences, Michael’s story is yet another powerful example of how God uses the most unlikely people and circumstances for his will. Michael has a heart for sharing his faith journey and specifically how a relationship with God helps people change. He shares how the church can absolutely play a big part in bring Christ to those who need Him, and at the same time, make heaven more crowded.
