about Michael McKissick

Greetings! I'm a follower of Christ, so I live my life trying to follow his greatest two commandments: love God and love others. Growing up in a Christian household, I never had much exposure to other faith traditions. I believe that understanding people is a great way to start loving them, so I'm excited to use OnFaith to understand how people navigate life through what they believe.
