Encouragement Center


Click HERE to go to the Go Fund Me page for Pastor Mike Thompson.

Pastor Mike has been working at Spider Lake Church for almost 4 years as our Pastor of Discipleship and he is also the Director of the Hayward Area House of Hope men’s home. (see https://www.houseofhopehayward.org).

Mike has recently lost over 150 lbs by restricting his diet and walking several miles each day so that he can live a more healthy lifestyle.

He has two surgeries coming up: knee surgery in December and neck surgery in February. This Go Fund Me is an attempt to help Mike pay for those and encourage him in continuing the ministry he does and living a healthy, pain free lifestyle.

God bless you Pastor Mike!
