Michael Fletcher served Manna Church as Senior Pastor for 40 years. In that time, the church grew from 350 to over 8,000 attenders in 2019. Coupling sound biblical teaching with relevant, practical application and cutting edge outreach, Michael and the pastoral staff have worked to create a culture that advances the Kingdom of God “across the street” and around the globe (actively engaged in 63 countries). Michael’s heart is not only to see God’s people equipped to change their world, but also for the planting of churches with the same world-changing vision. Under Michael’s leadership, Manna has helped to plant over 100 churches to date and is presently engaged in planting a version of Manna Church near every U.S. military base in the world.
Michael has authored seven books to include Building Successful Relationships, How to Get Promoted, Overcoming Barriers to Church Growth and most recently, Empowering Leadership.
