Personal Bio

Born and raised in Indiana, Michael Poorman is a die-hard fan of the Indianapolis Colts.  Before coming to Parkview, Michael, his wife Alison, daughter Maddie, and son Caleb lived in Indianapolis.  When he is not cheering on his favorite team, Michael enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring the outdoors, and running.  Completing his education at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, Michael received a Bachelor of Arts in Education there.  Here at Parkview Community Church, Michael serves as the Children’s Pastor and it is his responsibility to oversee anything related to children from birth to fifth grade.  Striving to help both kids and adults find their purpose, he refers to Ephesians 2:10 as his guide: “ For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  Driven by the values of honesty, integrity, and servanthood, Michael’s strong leadership skills help him lead the Parkview Children’s Ministry well.   With a genuine love for people, he has a heart for the surrounding community and especially for those who are often dismissed by others.
