Pastor Michael Downing
My name is Pastor Michael Downing, I am 40. I have three sons Maverick (16), Hunter (10) and Kyle (8). I have been married to Kathy Jo Downing since 10/22/02. We live in Henderson, NC. I was born in Denver, CO and was raised in NY. Most compare me to Apostle Paul. I have lived a very rough life, surrounded by addiction, abuse and instability. I received my calling in 2006 and it was prophesied that I would be a minister/evangelist. With the life style I grew up in, this seemed highly unlikely to me. So I continued to live my life my way, not Gods way. In the year 2008 God found a way to convince me that I was to be who He called me to be. So I surrounded myself with spiritual people who guided me and taught me that I could be a man of God and serve Him. Not only serve Him, but serve Him in ways that others couldn't. Because of the life style I grew up in, I was basically well trained for the position I was called into. So I became an ordained Minister on June 22, 2009, was given the title of Pastor in September 2009 and went to receive an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Divinity. Since then, through a vision given to me by the Holy Spirit. I have become a Non-profit corporation, registered as a church congregation under the name, also given by the spirit, Behind The Walls Ministry, Inc "Church of God, Universal". I am now attending Grand Canyon University through an online curriculum earning my Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies. I am currently working to get all of our works for God to where they should be.
I also Minister and teach on my internet radio show, http://blogtalkradio.com/behind-the-walls-ministry We have live guests sharing the work God is doing in their lives today. Plus we also teach and share the Word of God. I hope you join you click on the link and listen to some of our live recording's. I have taken a break for the last couple of months and will be back on live after the first of the year. My mentor Rev. Milton C. Jordan has passed, He was my only teacher and mentor for Christ since my calling began in 2006. He has taught me the truth of the Word, things I would never learn in the Traditional Church Organizations But yet God has given me a Spiritual Father Dr. John Roberts, http://facebook.com/johnrobertsministries the same day I found out about Rev. Jordan's passing. I believe God has put Dr. Roberts in my life to prepare me for what's to come.

6 “I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,
7 to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
