Mary Michael goes home to Fairburn, Ga., where her parents live. Her home church is Dogwood Church in Tyrone. Mary Michael worked as a camp counselor for three years at WinShape Camp for Girls and, after graduating with a nursing degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Ala., heard about the ministry of IMPACT 360 through some friends from camp.

Though it was not the job she expected to have, Mary Michael believes God had been shaping her for her role at IMPACT 360 for many years. “I know this is where God has for me to be,” Mary Michael said. “Everything else that I’m passionate about [besides nursing] – working with students, mentoring, discipleship, global missions – is encompassed in this job. God was establishing my steps all along.”
