Mike Gordon

Mike Gordon
Mike was born and raised in Toronto and after spending years walking the broad road in high school, he came to Christ in Mexico right before he graduated. After getting his first taste of ministry as a summer intern, he knew God was calling him to commit his life to serving God so he dropped out of school and pursued ministry. Over the last 8 years, he started The Rock House Ministries where he has planted or reshaped over a dozen ministries in Ontario. He has also become an international speaker, speaking over 850 times using his humour, education, experience and unique style to teach everyone from teenagers to pastors. At this moment, Mike is focused on the speaking side of ministry as he finishes up writing his first book. Today Mike is focused on speaking full-time as he has brought The Rock House Ministries under the umbrella of Global Outreach Missions.
