Short Biography

What started out with rough beginnings has blossomed into a full time ministry. Some thought he would go the way of the world, but Jesus Christ stepped in when he was nineteen. Mike often quips: “I owe everything to the church. It has given me my friends, a great wife and a purpose for taking up space on the planet.”

Mike earned his Bachelor’s Degree from Southwestern Assemblies of God University. He went on to earn his Master’s of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He pursued his doctoral studies at Fuller Theological Seminary.

The Robertson’s were the pastors of Praise Temple, a church in Burleson, Texas when they received a “God Nudge” to go to Southern California. It was in Oceanside that they planted Family Fellowship Church, and were the pastors there for fifteen years.

Mike then became the Vice President of University Advancement at Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) in Waxahachie, Texas. In 2008, Mike and Karen became the Lead Pastors of V1 Church in Visalia, CA.
