Pastor Mike Cheek
I grew up in a wonderful Christian family. I gave my heart to Jesus at the age of 4 and I gave my total life to Him while a junior at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. I have walked with the Lord almost all my life, experiencing time of closeness and distance from Him. In these days I am experiencing an intimate relationship like never before. I’m grateful that Bill Gaither’s song rings true for me: “The longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows.”
Pastor Mike started his ministry at Highpoint in December of 2013. In the past, he has served at Community Church of the Nazarene in Sandusky, Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Church of the Nazarene in Cardington, OH, and Marley Park Church of the Nazarene in Maryland. Pastor Mike and Janis were married in 1983, and all of his children our “out of the nest.”
Courtney and her husband, Abe, live in Winfield, WV, where Abe pastors the Nazarene Church. Courtney is a school teacher and two precious children, Ava (2 ½ years old) and Carson (6 months old). Drew lives in New Albany and works at Columbus Worthington Air. Tyler and Sierra were married this past May and live in Sandusky, Ohio where they both work for Kalahari Resorts. Janis also teaches school and they enjoy grandchildren, travel, movies, music, and leading Highpoint!
Pastor Mike says, ” I desire that Highpoint is a place that reflects the kingdom of God and touches our city for the name of the Lord. I’m not nearly as interested in “growing a church” as I am in seeing God’s glory invading our city. I believe God wants to come to Delaware in such a way that His love and heartbeat are evidenced everywhere in our city…in homes, schools, neighborhoods, stores, downtown streets, all over the city!”
