Mike Puckett has come on board as an associate staff member of the CCO, volunteering his time to reach out to students at The University of Akron.
Mike graduated from Appalachian State University in 2007 with a degree in English before continuing his studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he is currently enrolled. He has been active in the ministry at Akron for the past year and a half and has volunteered his time leading Bible studies and discipling and meeting with students.
During his time at Appalachian State, Mike became very involved with a pre-seminary organization and Baptist Convention Ministries, in which he became a part-time campus minister upon graduating.
Now more than ever, Mike is seeing how doors are being opened for him to reach out to students in Northeast Ohio. “God has opened door after door to allow me to serve on campus at the University of Akron,” says Mike. “There is no better partnership or organization available to me for connecting the campus and the church. I am overjoyed that this partnership is happening and that it aligns so well with what God has chosen to let me and my wife, Kelly, to be a part of.”
