"Surf Pastor Mike"
is Michael Denton from Nipomo, CA
Here are some VERY important things you need to know about Surfer Mike
COW: Hey, Michael, what is your favorite food?
MICHAEL: Chick-fil-a Chicken Strips
COW: And your favorite dessert?
MICHAEL: Chick-fil-a Ice Cream Cone.
Michael is Giant Cow Event Speaker
(AND one of the ministry's founders!)
COW: How about your favorite amusement park ride?
MICHAEL: The Wave Pool.
COW: Ummm...that's not really a ride, it's more of a SIT. Anyways, tell us about YOUR worst injury as a little kid.
MICHAEL: When I was about 9 years old, I was riding my bike really fast in the street and something caught in the chain. My bike stopped, but I sure didn't! Like the daring young man on the flying trapeze, I went flying through the air with the greatest of ease! I stopped myself with my front teeth on the asphalt. Not good for my smile.
COW: So how about your favorite song from church...and what's your favorite Bible verse?
MICHAEL: As a teenager, I memorized the words to And Can It Be and still love those words! A current favorite is the worship song, I Need Thee, because I need Jesus so badly. The Bible verse God has used in my life to motivate me to be more like Jesus is I Timothy 4:12 where it says to be an example to others of how a believer should talk, act, show love, etc.
COW: Tell us about your background in Children's Ministry? What has God placed on your heart that made you desire to minster to children?
MICHAEL: I started teaching Sunday School when I was a young teenager and since then have helped many ministries all over the United States as well as other countries in their training and outreach to children. Children are capable of pure understanding, faith, and devotion to God, and I love it when they "get it" for the first time or feel convicted to grow in their walk with God. Coming alongside parents as they train their children in God's ways is a total delight!
