His youth ministry experience includes serving as youth pastor, sectional director, district youth secretary as well as youth president for Alabama. Michael is privileged to be an ordained minister of the UPCI and is excited to serve this incredible generation of apostolic youth and young adults.
Michael met his beautiful wife at a youth camp and after many years of pursuit convinced her to marry him. Michael and DeAnna have been married for 14 years now and are parents to an eight-year-old, blue-eyed ray of sunshine named Myla Joy. The Thomas family also welcomed a new duo to the family, Jayla Hope and Judah Michael.

Before AYC I didn’t have super close, like-minded friends. Now after the trip is over, I can’t wait for the next opportunity to see all of these beautiful people again! I began the trip nearly crippled with anxiety and ended the trip with a stronger faith and a heart on fire, ready to light up change in my home town.
