I was born, raised and attended elementary through high school in beautiful sunny Southern California. My parents baptized me as an infant in the Lutheran Church, and my family was active at King of Glory Lutheran Church during my childhood. It was there that I learned and understood that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior as a pre-teen. After graduating high school I received a basketball scholarship to Southwestern College in Winfield Kansas, where I studied and received my Bachelor of Business Administration while playing on the basketball and tennis teams. I also met my wife, Pam, my first day on campus and we married the day before I graduated - May 23, 1987. We now have three sons, Dillon (23), Maxson (21), and Carlton (18). We live here in Keller along with my mother, 4 dogs and 1 fat cat.I was in the freight business for 20 years, which is what brought us to Texas. However, in 2006 I left the freight business and Pam and I opened Keller Eye Care, where she sees patients and I run the business side of the practice.
Everyone God calls to ministry is not called to the pulpit. God calls each and every one of us to minister in our own marketplace. Mike Burroughs’ marketplace is the barbershop. Mike has been cutting, serving, and ministering from behind the barber chair for over 27 years. Mike accepted the Lord as his personal savior at age 20. Prior to formally accepting Jesus for himself, he grew up in New Jersey in his family church, where nearly everybody was family. That is except one little girl. One day, at age 9, Mike looked into the congregation, saw a little girl with glasses and pigtails and said to himself “I’m going to marry that girl”. 14 years later, Mike and Anna tied the knot and have now been married for almost 33 years. They have two wonderful, loving, grown daughters. Mike has been a member of The Well for over two years and serves on the Greeter and Usher Team.
