In the fall of 2008, God blessed Nexus Church with Pastor Mike Underhill.
Pastor Mike joined us after a successful career in the business world in software training and human resources. Pastor Mike has always felt he was in the ministry, in a sense, and that he was called to serve God at an early age. However, Nexus is his first position as a professional minister.

Pastor Mike joins Nexus after having lived around the world in places like England and Japan; and across the United States from Tennessee, Houston and Chicago. His preaching style is casual and conversational employing visual aids, electronic media, drama and personal stories. The wisdom that comes with maturity and life experiences helps Pastor Mike make his sermons relevant and interesting. At the end of each sermon is a time for the people attending the service to share their thoughts about the sermon with Pastor Mike and each other.
Nexus' philosophy is one of “come, let us explore together”, not “come and listen to us give you all of the answers”. Nexus and Pastor Mike believe that faith and life should be connected. We come together to grow ourselves spiritually but just as importantly, to band together to make a positive impact in the community around us. Nexus has participated with the East Butler YMCA on several projects, assists homeless families, participates in a literacy project for at risk children and continues to search for opportunities to make our neighborhood a better place for all.
