Mike Vincent

Christian Union Nova Ministry Fellow

 

Mike Vincent grew up just outside San Diego in Carlsbad, CA. He graduated from Princeton in 2010 with a degree in Sociology, played varsity volleyball, and was heavily involved in the beginnings of a new campus ministry called Princeton Faith and Action (now CU Nova). He was a part of CU’s first Seeking God Lifestyle emphasis, was a part of the resulting move of God on Princeton’s campus, and was personally transformed. He then interned with Christian Union at Princeton for two years after graduation. 

 

After that he studied at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He then met his wife Anna, moved up to Ottawa, Canada, and began pastoring. Mike was a youth & young adult pastor, associate pastor, and lead pastor for over seven years.

 

Mike and Anna also fostered five teenage girls for three years while pastoring. They now have two boys - Kaden and Isaiah. Mike enjoys spending time with his family, board games, classic movies, metal music, volleyball, the Disney classics, and his side-hustle as a voice over artist.
