Michael (Mike) Mazzalongo
Michael Mazzalongo began his preaching and teaching ministry in Montreal, Quebec, in 1979. He was educated at Oklahoma Christian University in the United States and served as Dean of Students for that institution from 1991 to 1993. Brother Mazzalongo has preached for several congregations in Canada and the United States.
In his career he has specialized in the use of various "Medias" in the work of the local church. These have included radio, television, and more recently the internet where his teaching website BibleTalk.tv counts over 10,000 monthly visitors who download thousands of videos, eBooks and audio lessons each month.
Michael’s first book, Gay Rights or Wrongs, was published by College Press in 1995. Since then he has written over twenty books, several of which have been translated into French and Russian for use in the mission field.
Michael is married to Lise and together they have four children and eleven grandchildren. He presently serves as Education and Media Minister for the Choctaw Church of Christ, a congregation located in the Oklahoma City area.
