After graduating from college in electrical engineering, Myke served a two-year missionary term in Kenya. It was there that Myke first considered career ministry.
He says, “We serve an awesome God! My passion is to see students’ lives changed by the power of Jesus, and to plant and strengthen college ministries that help facilitate that change.
“I want to see students encounter Jesus, be empowered by the Holy Spirit, and become equipped to minister while at college, in the local church, and after graduation.” Myke’s plan is to develop the Arizona State University ministry and he also serves on the Leadership Team for the Southwest region.
Myke, raised in a Christian family, made a conscious commitment to Christ while in high school.
Melody came to know the Lord in Junior high. After graduation she served with Campus Ambassadors in Ashland, Oregon until their marriage in 1985.
In 1991 they moved to Minneapolis to begin a new ministry at the University of Minnesota.
The winter of 1999 found Myke, Melody and son Matthew relocating to Tempe, Arizona. They now work on the campus of Arizona State University-Polytechnic.
Myke and Melody have one child: Matthew.
