Michael Ferris is a potter, an ordained minister, and has served as an adjunct professor at The Alliance Theological Seminary and Graduate School of Counseling. For 12 years he maintained a private consulting practice and then left his practice to pursue a full-time calling as a missionary/evangelist. Michael's passion is to use the message of "A Journey to the Potter's House" to help bring people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to help people find hope and healing from the emotional pain in their life. Michael demonstrates, through the shaping of clay, God's awesome plans for us. He weaves the lessons learned through his own brokenness, and shares how the Potter uses pressure and pain to transform us, the clay, into vessels of honor, beauty, worth, and purpose. Michael lives in Connecticut with his wife and four children.
