“I enjoy helping people find joy. Joy, to me, is all the things Jesus brings to the table.”
Mike began helping people find joy early in his life while growing up in Florida. He did this through his God-given talent in music. During his teenage years, Mike began leading music for the church he grew up in.
He found a passion for working with both youth and music while in his college years at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. He also met his lovely bride, Sally Brasher, at Belmont. Mike and Sally now have six amazing children and four precious young grandchildren. Life is never dull at the Peasall household.
Mike has been serving on church staff and inspiring many in their walk with Jesus for over three decades. He has been serving as pastor of Gateway for over a decade. As Pastor, Mike sets the direction and pace for Gateway. “I love to give people the resources they need and then watch them grow their ministry.”
When Mike has a spare moment, he enjoys time with family, working on creative projects, and watching superhero movies. He also enjoys listening to some of his favorite inspirational speakers like Francis Chan and Bill Johnson. Mike's says his favorite musicians are the ones related to him.
