Michael Baier is the founding and lead pastor of BELIEVING CHURCH. He and his wife, Mindy, are both native Memphians who know and love the city and are excited to be back living in the 901. With thirteen years of marriage and over fifteen years of ministry under their belt, they are ecstatic about this new season and all that is to come as they work to help people believe God.
With years of experience as an Executive Pastor and Student Ministry Pastor, Michael brings his energy, creativity, and passion into leading the charge at BELIEVING CHURCH. He loves Jesus. He loves people. He loves life. So if you're looking for him and he's not doing church things, you may find him at FedEx forum with a "Growl Towel" in tow, on a course sinkin' birdie putts, gettin' buckets in the gym, or enjoying quality coffee at a local establishment.
Mindy is a counseling and psychology major who's invested her life into working with kids. From teaching and school administration to leading a nursery ministry for close to five years, serving kids has and will always be a passion for Mindy. One of her favorite roles is the fact she's mom to Tucker, Michael and Mindy's one and only son. Currently, she's a high school teacher, but you'll often find her at a pool or exploring the zoo, because that's what Tucker loves to do.
