Friday night August 16th, 2002 Mike Kinney fell asleep driving his Ford Ranger. Smashing into a telephone pole, his truck caught fire pinning Mike to the driver’s seat. His best friend Matt, a total stranger, and Jesus sprang into action to rescue Mike. Mike’s a worship leader from Indiana who’s just released his riveting story Out of the Fire: How an Angel and a Stranger Intervened to Save a Life.
First, Mike’s last memory before the accident. (He wouldn’t have his next memory till 6 weeks later). Then, 100 people show up at the hospital that night to pray for Mike. Next, Jesus literally walks into the accident scene. Then, Mike had to see his smashed Ford Ranger. What he saw on the steering wheel knocked him back on his heels.
Next, if you’ve been shattered by life, Mike shares hope with you. Last, a note from a classmate 9 months after the crash that helped Mike realize God’s purpose for his life. And a guitar given by rock legend Pete Townshend that pushed the gospel deep into Mike’s heart. Please share this incredible story!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
