Anyone who firsts meets Mike immediately feels comfortable. And warm. And fuzzy. Mike is happy. Mike is cool. Everyone likes Mike. Having received the call to Student Ministry at a summer camp under his mentor and friend Chad Ramage, Mike became part of the staff in 2007, and more recently took over the reigns as Youth Pastor. Mike grew up in Porterville and was a local basketball star in the community. He now uses his athletic talent to bless our congregation and community with ministries for the whole family through the avenue of athletics. Mike helped bring Upward basketball and cheer-leading to Port Naz, which has grown in to one of our largest ministries. One of Mike’s favorite things to do is challenge his colleague, Pastor Chad, on the golf course. Mike met his wife, Michelle, while in college at PLNU. They were married in 2007 and now have two amazing kids, their son Kipton (2011), and their daughter Kailea (2015). The Smee family loves to travel, play games, and just hang out with people!
