Dr. Mike Carlisle, a native of Cincinnati Ohio, had an early faith experience in a small neighborhood Baptist Church and was later called into ministry as a freshman in college. While attending a Christian college, in Kentucky, he met and married his life partner, Judy Allen.

Mike and Judy were always active in their local church as teachers, leaders and lay ministers. It was in San Juan Capistrano, California, that Mike’s call to ministry was renewed. He resigned his executive position, left California, and moved his family to Texas, where he finished his Master’s of Divinity degree (M Div) at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. After Seminary, Mike served as National Director, Evangelism Explosion, and then moved back to California where he led two churches as Senior Pastor. This included starting a new church that was sponsored by Rick Warren and Saddleback Church, in Lake Forest, California.

Mike joined the staff of the North American Mission Board in January 1998.   His first primary goal -- to provide leadership and vision for using technology to further God’s Kingdom, start new churches, and evangelize North America and Canada.  Mike’s experience in evangelism, church planting, management and technology gave him a unique set of skills to provide technical and communications leadership with a ministry perspective. Mike was later appointed as Vice President of Strategic Communications then VP of Missions and Mobilization.

Before accepting the call to serve as Director of Missions for the San Diego Southern Baptist Association, Mike was President and Co-Director of Vision San Diego. Vision San Diego is a non-profit organization that connects businesses, schools, non-profits, government, and faith communities to transform the County of San Diego with servant leadership. 

As far as hobbies are concerned Mike’s interests include golf, reading, technology, motorcycles and racquetball. He and his wife, Judy, have three sons and five granddaughters. Mike holds several graduate degrees including MBA, M.Div., and Doctor of Ministry in Transformational Leadership for the Global City.

It has been said by those who have worked with her, "She believes in prayer through her private time either by talking or by journaling". She would say she is very much a ‘student of prayer.’

As far as hobbies are concerned, Judy’s interests are walking on the beach, formatting a “Book of Me” for a legacy to her 5 granddaughters, putting on Special Teas, growing roses, motorcycling with her husband, Mike.

It can be summed up by one of her dear friends, Florence Littauer, “She’s a real, upfront person,,, excited about what she teaches... it comes through... she sees potential in others-a visionary.”

Who is Julie McFadzean…

 – Communication Specialist

I have been a Tax Analyst Programmer, Tax Preparer, waitress and cashier.  I was born in Ohio, raised in Pennsylvania and I also lived in Florida, where my daughter, now a young woman, was born.

As a child, my mother was always saying I should be on stage.  I haven’t lost that knack, as I enjoy connecting with people, making them laugh and ‘entertaining’ them.  The more people in the room, the better!  I miss the seasons of the east coast, especially the snow.  There is something about the snow and the twinkling appeal it provides that will always be in my heart and childlike eyes. 

Favorite music – book – movie
I grew up playing the clarinet and singing in the choir at school.  I am not sure if that is where my love for feeling music comes from.  I absolutely LOVE ALL kinds of music, as it speaks to my soul.  I have the uncanny ability to know and retrieve the words of most songs that were sung in the 70 and 80s.  My tastes in books have changed over the years and the ones I own in my bookshelves have served their purpose.  I enjoy utilizing the words on the pages for whatever my current seeking in life seems to be.  At present, the Bible plays the biggest role and numerous daily devotionals.  The last book that I finished that had the most impact was “Safer than a Known Way” by Pamela Rosewell Moore.   I can watch and enjoy most any movie but I seem to be attached to sci-fi.  Probably the quest of understanding the unknown.

Hiking, baking sweets, dancing, encouraging and hugging others, reading to escape to the world of the author, LAUGHING.  I do not enjoy golf, however if Tiger Woods is playing and his magic is ‘on’, I am watching.

Edison Community College in Fort Myers, FL, AA; University of South Florida in Tampa, FL, BA in Liberal Arts.
