Pastor Michael Parker is a man seeking God’s own heart whether it be in
formal ministry or in ministry at home with his family, in Tempe, Arizona. He is married to his lovely wife, Chris since 1993 and they have 4 
children: Jeremy, Charis, Kendra and Cassidy.

He has been vitally, prayerfully involved in local church ministry for 20
years with 15 of those years as a Pastor of Student Ministries at Grace Community Church in Tempe, AZ. In 2009, he felt God’s call to step out in faith by raising support for this full-time ministry. Through his work in the church, he sensed a profound need for mentoring among workers both locally and globally. He felt strongly called and equipped to answer that need and so he began his own ministry: Developing Workers. Developing Workers stated purpose is to “develop workers to mobilize ministry in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and all the ends of the earth.”
