Mike was born in Ohio and raised in Northern California, and while initially a bit hesitant to move to God’s country, he finally calls Texas “home”. After graduating from high school, he attended a small Bible school for 2 years in Comfort, TX called His Hill, which is a part of Torchbearers International. His Hill transitions into a ranch camp for kids during the summer; Mike worked for 5 summers, and it was there he met his wife, Lisa.
After getting married, they moved to Bryan, TX and served in their church’s youth program for 6 years. They moved to Austin in 2017, where The Lord opened the door for Mike to earn his Master’s in Youth Ministry, which he completed in the Spring of 2020. The Niswanders are so excited to be here in Marble Falls to serve this church and community! Mike has a deep passion to share God’s word and the love of Christ with youth, and desires to see them grow in their personal relationship with Jesus. His wife Lisa is a graduate of the University of North Texas and has been an elementary music teacher for 9 years. They have two children, Guinevere (4) and Huxley (2) and are about to welcome their third (a boy!) this September.
