Meet Minister Mike

Faron W. Franklin, Evangelist

Mike Harshman, Minister

I grew up in northeast Ohio (Sebring) and was raised in the Pine Lake Christian Church (formerly Sebring Church of Christ). I had the privilege to come back and serve as the minister there before coming to RCoC. I love Christ’s church and am humbled to serve as a minister/evangelist for the last 30 years. After graduating from Cincinnati Bible College (CCU) in 1995 with a bachelor of science degree in Christian Ministries & Biblical Studies, I’ve had the privilege to serve in various ministries, including a 13 year ministry with the Brooksville Christian Church in Brooksville, Florida (where we built a new church building and saw God provide growth to His church). I also am passionate about Elkhorn Valley Christian Service Camp and it’s ministry. 

My wife, Kristi, and I married in May of 1998 and we have 4 children: Jaret (deceased in 2015), Dane, Keegan & Mallory (who will graduate from high school in May, 2023). Upon her graduation we will officially move to the Pittsburgh area and buy a home. 

My hobbies include reading (avid Sherlock Holmes fan) and sports including Ohio State and everything Pittsburgh (Penguins, Steelers & Pirates). 

I believe the church is the greatest hope we have because of what Jesus has done for us by dying for our sins and rising from the grave. To preach, teach, lead and provide pastoral care is not job - but a calling and privilege. I am very excited about the future at Restoration Church of Christ and what God has in store for this next chapter. 

We exist to TAKE the gospel to all people, to TRANSFORM hearts to be like Jesus, and TRAIN disciples to make more disciples.
