Mike Goheen began his professional life as a PCA church planter and pastor in the Toronto area. Then, for over two decades, he taught worldview studies, biblical theology, and missiology at Dordt College, Redeemer University College, Trinity Western University, Regent College, and Calvin Theological Seminary. For most of that time, he has held part-time pastoral and preaching positions in local congregations. Presently, he splits his time between Vancouver, BC, Canada, and Phoenix, Arizona, where he directs the theological education program at the Missional Training Center (MTC), an extension site of Covenant Seminary. He also serves as scholar-in-residence for Surge Network of churches in Phoenix.
Mike has authored, co-authored, or edited twelve books, including The Church and Its Vocation: Lesslie Newbigin’s Missional Ecclesiology (Baker, 2018), Introducing Christian Mission Today: Scripture, History, and Issues (IVP, 2014), and A Light to the Nations: The Missional Church and the Biblical Story (Baker, 2011). He spends time each year in Brazil, Chile, and Hungary training pastoral leaders.
Mike has been married to Marnie since 1979. They have four married children and eleven grandchildren.
