Get to Know the Calhoun Family

Hi, we're Mike and Betsi Calhoun. We minister in the United States.


Ministry Description

For over 40 years Betsi and I have been reaching youth with the truth of God’s Word both in the USA and around the world. I work alongside our Executive Director, Don Lough, Jr., helping with strategic initiates to expand the global impact of Word of Life Fellowship. My current responsibilities include preaching, teaching, writing and networking with partner ministries.

About Mike

Mike’s ministry passion can be expressed in two words “reproduce reproducers!” Taken from 2 Timothy 2:2, He has a burden for evangelism, discipleship and the development of future leadership. He carries out this passion through a diversified ministry of discipleship, preaching, teaching and writing.

Mike has co-author several books, including Where Was God When, The Greenhouse Project and has written the Where Do I Go from Here?: An Interactive Discipleship Series. He continues an ongoing writing ministry and maintains a full travel schedule preaching both nationally and internationally in churches, youth events, leadership conferences, colleges and seminaries.

Mike’s formal education includes a B.A. degree in Bible from Tennessee Temple University, as well as graduate work done through Columbia Theological Seminary and a Master of Ministry Degree from Baptist Bible Seminary. He has served with Word of Life Fellowship since 1974 in several roles including Director of Word of Life Island and Vice President of Local Church Ministries. He presently serves as Executive Assistant to the President for Ministry Development.

Mike makes his home in Schroon Lake, New York, with his wife, Betsi. They have three grown children: Misty (with the Lord), Joshua (granddaughter, Misty Arden) and Caleb.

About Betsi

Trained as a secondary school teacher, Betsi has taught young people all of her life; but her greatest passion is to share Christ with those who do not know Him personally plus teach the truths of God’s Word to gals of all ages. Betsi is the wife of Mike Calhoun, Executive Assistant to the President of Word of Life Fellowship, the mother of three, and a grandmother.

Betsi speaks in various conferences, women’s retreats, and teen functions both nationally and internationally. She carries on a regular ministry of personal discipleship in the lives of ladies and teen girls. She loves traveling and ministering alongside her husband Mike. She just recently finished writing her first book, which is presently in the publishing process.
