Michael O’Sullivan joins LifeSong from Topeka, Kansas where he served a 100+ member student ministry at Fellowship Bible Church. Before that he was the full-time youth minister at the First United Methodist Church in Carthage, Missouri for seven years.
He has a passion for revealing the life-changing grace of Jesus and power of the Holy Spirit to all people. He has a vision for equipping adult leaders and student leaders for small group disciple-making and using local and international outreach/mission opportunities to challenge students to live like Jesus. This summer, he is leading a group of LifeSong students and adults to serve in Piedras Negras, Mexico.
Michael graduated from Pittsburg State University with a degree in Commercial Graphics. There he had the opportunity to serve Jesus as an English teacher in Kazakhstan in 2004. He formed such meaningful relationships that he returned to KZ in 2010 to visit his Kazakh friends and hopes to visit them again soon.
He completed a missions training in Salina, Kansas and later received a certificate from Perspectives in the World Christian Movement. In 2014, he partnered with Life of Hope Ministries in Joplin, Missouri for a short-term mission trip to support Guatemalan believers in Guatemala City.
