Our Staff

  • Mike Shay


    Mike is the founding pastor of Branches Church. If you know him, you know he's a regular guy who is growing in his relationship with God and wants to help others do the same. He likes music (especially playing guitar), history, and being in the great outdoors. He and his wife, Robin, have two grown children.

  • Marcia Thompson

    Administrative Assistant

    If you call Branches Church, Marcia is probably the voice you'll hear on the other end of the phone. She is one of the people who keep Branches going by using her skills in the church office. She loves quiet mornings, sunrises and sunsets, and enjoys helping others. She also likes spending time with others while having her daily "must-haves" of coffee and dark chocolate. She is married to husband Ernie and has four sons.
