Simply put, Michael Bethune is a grateful grace recipient who returns the favor daily by helping to change the lives of others. After returning home as a young, disoriented military veteran (having served in a life-threatening environment), he needed help getting readjusted. Through some good counseling, faith, and family support, his healing process began to take place...SO HE KNOWS FIRSTHAND, WHAT IT IS TO BE STUCK IN LIFE!
His personal story of perseverance, resiliency, and overcoming, serves to further authenticate and concretize the importance and validity of his message and life's work.
For well over two decades now, Mike has served in key leadership roles in churches, rescue missions, homeless and domestic violence shelters for women and children, programs for homeless youth that have aged out of foster-care, served as a counseling and referral source for fellow veterans, provided counseling and direction for those struggling with varying addictions, and so much more!
Michael is a 2X-published author, he has also delivered messages and many keynote addresses for several NFL teams over the years. Some of those include the last 3-Super Bowl Champion New York Giant Teams, the Denver Broncos, the Los Angeles Rams, Tennessee Titans, Baltimore Ravens, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, and the Atlanta Falcons, to name a few. He has also presented in many college and university settings.
