Michael Limanni, Teaching Pastor
Email: mlimanni@cedarcommunitychurch.org
 
Pastor Mike is waaaaaay younger than Pastor Dale. In 1992, he began working with teens as part of a local church youth ministry in Tacoma. At that time, Mike and Darlene had just moved back into the Tacoma area with their first child. A few years later, they were asked to get involved with the worship team and, then, to join the pastoral team. Mike was ordained in July of '99 and he and his family moved to Bonney Lake that same month. He has been involved in teaching and music ministry in Tacoma, Federal Way, and, now, Buckley. They love living on the plateau.
  
"I met Dale in '02, and he became my mentor in '03. He continues to challenge me to become the man God made me to be. It has been a wild ride! My heart is to challenge others, especially men, with the message of God's great adventure - the gospel - and to invite them to find their place in The Great Story.

Mike works full-time for IBM and volunteers as part of the pastoral team. He and Darlene have been married 25 years and have a son, two daughters and one son-in-law. :-) They love camping, snow, and spending time together.
 
"The Lord is a wild man. He's not a 'tame lion'. He isn't 'safe', but He's good. I love walking with Him - you never know what adventures or challenges are waiting for you just around the corner."
