Hello all - My name is Michael Swanson, and I love college students! My life changed drastically when I was in college, where God called me to the mission field of higher education. I currently serve students with Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) as the Discipleship Resource & Training Special. My lovely wife, Mikala, and I live in Pittsburgh with our dog named Bo. I love coffee, hockey, and books. Sometimes in that order.
Why the name?
All of my life I've been a thinker. In fact, I've often been caught so deep in my own thoughts that I am completely unaware of my surroundings. Sometimes that's a good thing, but often its not. I have been known as the boy who thinks too much.
Since college I have seen the Holy Spirit reclaiming and restoring my thinking - both the act and the product. As I continue to serve Jesus and His church, I hope that he would use our conversations to "build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son, growing into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness." (Eph. 4:12-13)
I can't do that by myself. Neither can you. But we can strive towards Jesus, together.
