Michael began his professional career as a private attorney in 2007 after completing his Juris Doctorate at Indiana University. Prior to obtaining his law degree, he completed his Master of Arts in Athletics Administration for Higher Education at Ball State University and his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at Pepperdine University. In 2011, Michael was called away from private practice as an attorney and accepted the position of Director of Charitable Products and Church Loans at Everence Financial, an organization founded on Mennonite values and principles. Later, he went to work for the medical device industry at Zimmer Biomet, serving in a variety of Compliance roles including that of Associate Director of Compliance, serving the US and Canadian sales personnel and distributorships. Most recently, Michael served as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance, Privacy and Risk Officer for Redimed and Lutheran Medical Group. These experiences allowed Michael great opportunity to develop expertise around the areas of HIPAA, regulatory compliance – including the implementation of systems and enforcement of policy, contract writing and risk management.
In this role, Michael will have overarching responsibility for the Compliance and Quality Assurance, Information Technology and Support Services staff. In addition, Michael will help protect CRA’s ministry by pulling from his legal background to advise CRA’s CEO and other members of the leadership team on subjects of significant risk. The combination of Michael’s advanced education; work experience in legal, compliance and operations roles especially; and his enthusiasm for joining our ministry to serve children and families in need have uniquely prepared him for CRA’s Chief Operations Officer and General Counsel.

John graduated from Clemson University in 1990 after earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. Soon afterward, he earned his Certified Public Accounting License. In the beginning of his professional career, he worked as an Accountant at progressive levels specializing in audits, taxes, and real estate. Throughout that time and during all of the 90s, John and his wife served as Youth Sponsors for their church, Woodruff Road Christian Church, in Simpsonville, South Carolina.
In 2001, John felt a deeper calling for ministry that led him back to school to complete his Masters of Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. Beginning in 2002, he held the positions of Youth Pastor, Associate Pastor and, most recently, Lead Pastor in churches located in Texas and Michigan. He and his wife, Trish, also became the proud parents of two daughters – Abigail Grace and Madeline Elizabeth – during this time and their family’s walk with Christ continued to blossom and grow.
When John heard about this position at Compass Rose, he saw an opportunity to serve God through an avenue other than local church ministry. CRA’s Director of Spiritual Life and Staff Chaplain role matched John’s God-given gifts of leadership, relationship and education and became known to him and Trish at just the right time in life. They relocated to Wabash, Indiana, from South Carolina and are excited to begin this endeavor!
