Board Game Geek: InnroadsMike
Mike went to school to be a preacher. While he’s served in churches before, it became clear over time that God had a different idea for his ministry. Something outside the church walls. These days Mike leads gaming events, speaks at retreats and conferences, and generally acts as a proponent for the power of the gaming table. He is blessed with a loving wife who puts up with him as he pursues a life of sharing God with gamers.

He’s blessed to be married to a wonderful woman who helps him indulge his inner geek even though she doesn’t quite get it.
