Mike Samulak has accepted the position of Disciple & Residence Director (DRD) at Newpoint Partnership. He will be the first DRD of Newpoint House. Born and raised in Michigan in a Russian-Polish family, he loves to study his heritage and it’s language. He accepted Christ as an early teen, but a few years later walked away from his faith. Later in life, after several re-attempts, he finally found himself facing the consequences of many poor choices and criminal charges, both state and federally. Upon incarceration, he began praying and reading the Word, daily. He felt the calling on his life to make a final change and recommit his life to the Lord. He began by facilitating different groups, such as A/A and N/A groups, in order to start sharing the love of Christ with fellow inmates. Through these groups and programs, he felt a heavy calling on his life, a life of ministry. After 5 years of confinement, he re-entered civilian life with a new perspective and a new love, one for sharing the gospel! He began facilitating men’s Bible study groups, began working in the field of construction, and continued to provide support of fellow parolee’s by attending state mandated groups once his parole was up. He has also joined fellow believers and some leaders of other denominations in other weekly prayer meetings. Newpoint has given Mike the opportunity to fulfill the calling God has placed on his life and allowed him the chance to give back what was given to him by the grace of God. The scripture placed on Mike’s heart, that describes him best is this: Isaiah 6:8 “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, Here am I; send me.”
