Pastor Mike Hammer and his wife Connie have a genuine passion for God, life and ministry, and they live it boldly! They approach everything they do as a team, whether it’s building a healthy marriage and family, working in the church office, or reaching out to others with a heart of love and compassion. With one, you get the other!
Mike and Connie met while attending North Central Bible School in Minneapolis, Minnesota, were married in 1990, and have three adult children, Victoria, Tiffany, and Madison.

He believes you will find a visit to Celebration to be an unforgettable experience of passionate praise, authentic relationships, and inspirational teaching of God’s Word.

Pastor Mike enjoys playing basketball, golfing, hunting and fishing, artistic painting, playing guitar and songwriting. A few of his favorite things (not in any particular order): just being with his family, cruising with his wife, wearing his John Deere cap, boots and a flannel shirt, a whole pot of flavored coffee, sitting by the fire, and watching the Green Bay Packers.
