Mike McCrae met and married his college sweetheart, Jill, while pursuing a degree in Christian Education at Northeast Bible College in New Jersey. A career change to the field of electronics brought the couple to Durham in 1989. A few years after their move they experienced a life-changing event when Jill delivered a set of quintuplets. Four children survived and came home to a very active household. During those years Mike had the blessing of being a contractor for a large pharmaceutical company and is still employed there to this day.
Being part of the initial launch of Dayspring Fellowship in June 1992, Mike has been active in leading home groups, and by the end of 1998 he was asked to become Dayspring’s Worship Leader. He has also had the privilege of mentoring two others to become Worship Leaders as well. In June 2018 Mike was ordained as an Elder.
Mike loves to cook (especially grilled food!), entertain people at his home, play music, camp when he has the chance, and is an active DIY person.
Mike wants people to experience FREEDOM; to start with faith in Jesus and then to walk out the practical steps of that faith in COMMUNITY! To walk as Jesus walked...TOGETHER.
