Pastor Michael Uzdavines was born in New Jersey and moved to Florida with his family at the age of 13. As a young boy, Michael enjoyed computer programming, playing video games, playing baseball and hockey, and eventually played college baseball. Michael went to law school at the University of Florida and met his wife, Marilyn, there. They have been married for 17 years and have four children, Franco (14), Angelina (13), Valentina (11), and Liliana (5). After ten years of practicing law, Michael felt a calling on his life to be in full-time ministry. Michael earned his Masters in Divinity from Liberty University and later his M.B.A. from University of Florida. For the last ten years, in his free time, Michael has been developing games and programs to help spread the gospel of Jesus. His passion is reaching out to the lost and unchurched through video games and in the digital space. Michael and his family have lived in South Florida for the last nine years where they enjoy going on family bike rides, day trips to the beach, playing tennis, and playing games together.
