Micah Jelinek – Associate Pastor of Discipleship

Why OPC|Milford?
Laura and I ended up at OPC|Milford a few months into its start after being at Oak Pointe Church in Novi for a number of years. We are firm believers that as God’s people live, work, and participate in community together, the culture around us can experience renewal as the grace of the gospel works its way outward. So, while God has used a number of factors to bring us here, it’s the friends and neighbors that God has brought into our lives that have anchored our family here in Milford.
Family
Laura and I were married in 2008 and we now have three children (Violet, Henry and Evangeline).
