I have attached a resume and brief summary of my life’s work history.  I am attaching this letter to fill in some details of my conversion experience, my walk with the Lord and my service to Him.

I met my wife, Elizabeth (Betty) Young in high school, in 1965.  We married in 1968.  We have been married for 52 years.  I entered the U.S. Army Security Agency (military intelligence branch) that same year.

Both, I and my wife, received Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord in 1978.  The first church we attended and joined as new Christians was Castle Hills First Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas.

I had attended college classes while in the military and at Virginia Commonwealth University after leaving the military.  I attended classes at Boyce Bible College 1991 through 1992.

I first served as a Deacon in our Baptist church in 1985.  I began serving as a pulpit-fill preacher, itinerant pastor, guest speaker, and Evangelist from 1991 through 2000.

I completed Pastoral counseling certification through the Baptist Association in Richmond, Virginia, in 1993.

I served as a guest interim Pastor at Kentwood Heights Baptist, New Kent, Virginia in 1992 under Pastor Charles Gibson.
 
Our family moved to White Stone Virginia in 2000 where I served as pastor of discipleship and evangelism at the White Stone Church for three years.  I was locally licensed by the Nazarene Church in 2002.

I planted and established The White Stone Fellowship in White Stone, Virginia in 2006.

I continue as director and pastor for White Stone Fellowship.  Our ministry and mission is to establish Home Fellowships with the intention of reaching the lost and the straying.  I also maintain the ONLINE White Stone Fellowship and God’s Truth, Incorporated.  ( ).

I clearly sense God’s clear call, back to active full-time pulpit ministry in order to equip and prepare the Church for Christ’s return.

The Body of Christ must come together and boldly proclaim His message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and to model that Godly love in our daily lives.

We must live the example of Christ Jesus, without compromise or wavering but we must also confront the evils in our society and this world and speak the Word of God without fear.

Sincerely,

Michael J. Young, Sr.
