Who is The REAL Mike Nelson Anyway?


Mike Nelson

No one's life has a single dimension and neither does mine. Here are the key facets of my life, listed in order of importance to me.

Husband to Julia
Father to Bryan, Jason, Aaron and Karen
Grandfather to Dorothy, Ellamae and David
Friend to my Friends
Information Technology Professional

In early 2005, I exercised the Grace given me by God and gave my life to Him. Those of you who knew me before that are probably in shock. I certainly can't blame you for that!

Over the past years a significant number of changes have occurred and my life is quite different now. New and wonderful things. My focus is clearly different. My priorities are re-ordered. Many of my views have changed and more change is clearly in the works. Even at my age, I am happy to say, I am a work in progress.

Personal Ministry

... Pay attention to the ministry you have received in the Lord, so that you can accomplish it.

Colossians 4:17 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)


As a Christian I have the good fortune to be called to Personal Ministry. Actually, all Followers of Jesus Christ are called to FULL-TIME PERSONAL MINISTRY, at the very least. It is not a request nor is it an option. It is a calling, it is a command from Jesus, himself. If you profess to be a Christian, consider yourself called!

The very best description I have ever read of Personal Ministry and our call to it was written by Christa Blakey in one of her BLOGS. I recommend it, it is certainly worth the read. Click here to read Consider Yourself Called.

One major change for me is that I have been focusing more of my time on Personal Ministry for the past two years or so. So far the Lord has blessed me with opportunities in several specific areas for Personal Ministry:

  • Living the way Our Lord would have me live (I have a long way to go on this one...)
  • Meals for the Hungry
  • Food Rescue

Information about our Personal Ministry efforts can be found at Divine Resourcing's website.

My Work in Information Technology

Some of you already know I have been an IT (Information Technology) Professional, working at the Enterprise Level for decades now. I have been very blessed and I continue to really enjoy my work in the world of IT and if the Good Lord is willing, I look forward to many more years serving, professionally, in this arena.
