Dr. Easley’s experience in ministry spans four decades as a gifted Bible teacher and church leader. He shares a passion for ministry, heart for people, and love of God.
First impacted by the Bible teaching of Dr. Bob Tolson (Bethel Independent Presbyterian Church, Houston, Texas) Michael fell in love with learning the Scripture. While attending Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX, Michael was further influenced by men from Dallas Seminary. That exposure led him to attend seminary. During his time in ministry, Michael has pastored three churches: Grand Prairie Bible Church in Texas, Immanuel Bible Church in Northern Virginia, and Fellowship Bible Church in Nashville, TN. He also served as the eighth president of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois.
Michael completed his undergraduate B.S.Ed. in 1980 from Stephen F. Austin, a graduate Th.M. in 1985, and post-graduate D.Min. in 2003, both from Dallas Theological Seminary. In recognition of his doctoral work, Michael received the John G. Mitchell Award for outstanding scholarship and effectiveness in ministry.
Michael has written, “Interludes: Prayers and Reflections of a Servant’s Heart,” and co-authored “The Da Vinci Code Controversy” with Dillon Burroughs and John Ankerberg. Michael has been the featured speaker on the weekly broadcast, “Moody Presents” and now on the 24-minute program, “Michael Easley inContext.”
