Simply put, Mike Washer loves God and teens. He is a gifted preacher and a careful expositor. His faithful ministry to the young people at Baptist Church has been Holy Spirit blessed and there is much fruit that remains. As his home church, we share his burden for evangelism beyond the boundaries of Spartanburg, SC. Westgate Baptist Church has pledged her support and is privileged to be an ongoing part of his growing ministry. I recommend him to you without reservation and I am confident that he will help you reach your community for Christ.

Youth evangelism is a needy field that is white unto harvest. The Lord has burdened Evangelist Mike Washer to help meet that need. As a youth pastor, the Lord has used Mike to nurture a youth group that is growing spiritually, and burdened him to reach the lost. One of the effective outreaches of their calendar has been their basketball outreach. The Lord has used this outreach to reach scores of young people with the Gospel. Now God has laid upon his heart to take this evangelistic tool on the road. Mike has a heart for souls and for youth. I recommend him to your consideration.

Mike Washer has preached summer teen camps and participated in various programs here at The Anchorage. His preaching is Biblical, passionate, powerful, and practical. His conviction on the power of the Gospel and the authority of Scripture has been used by the Holy Spirit to produce noticeable conviction in many, resulting in spiritually changed lives. I have found him to live as he preaches, showing genuine care and compassion to those around. His wife is nothing but a credit to him and his ministry. I heartily recommend his ministry to you.

National Hoops, in my opinion, is one of the most exciting local church teen outreaches in America today. The sports format bringing many teenage boys and girls under the hearing of the gospel. Evangelist Mike Washer is being used of God in a mighty way and scores of both teens and adults alike are accepting Christ as their Savior. I highly recommend this ministry to assist your local church youth ministry.

“My observation and participation in the ministry of National Hoops has been really encouraging. It is well-organized, ethical, and God-dependent. The Lord has already used it to bring many young souls to Himself. I especially appreciate its separated stand, biblically solid follow-up materials, and carefulness to be a servant to local churches. The Philippines needs ministries with ingredients like National Hoops.”
