Michael Tanksley is originally from Grand Rapids, MI, and has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Michigan State University (Go Green & White). After fourteen years as an accountant, he has decided to pursue the opportunity to become a gospel preacher. His formal training began in August of 2018 at the Southeast Institute of Biblical Studies in Knoxville, TN. His wife Angela, born and raised in Newton, KS, enjoys homeschooling their three children (Allyson, Parker, & Mallory). She earned a bachelor’s degree as well, in elementary education, from Grand Valley State University. They were both heavily involved with the work at the Southside church of Christ (Grand Rapids, MI), as Michael served as a deacon over finance and Angela was the church secretary. Upon graduation in 2020, they look forward to working with a congregation wherever the Lord needs them. You can sign-up for their monthly family newsletter by requesting it here.
