Leadership Team

Mike and Kelly

Mike and Kelly McClung, Senior Elders

Mike has strong prophetic gifting, and also a call and anointing to teach and exhort the Body of Christ. Mike’s mission is to unveil the knowledge of God in order that transforming grace will be released to bring reformation to the church and to rebuild, restore, and advance the kingdom of God. Revelatory teaching on the Bride and Bridegroom paradigm, the Kingdom of God, as well as teaching that unlocks the beauty of the corporate nature of the Body of Christ, are at the heart of his ministry. He has done extensive research and teaching on the Tabernacle of David, the Song of Songs, intimacy with God, and maturity in Christ (Eph. 4:11-16). Mike is the senior pastor of Lionheart Fellowship and the Director of Lionheart Restoration Ministries. Mike has also been involved in Native American reconciliation initiatives and forums, and Apostolic and Prophetic Summits both in the U.S. and abroad. His calling to intercede in order to “open up” ancient wells has led him to occasional travel and teaching both in the U.S. and overseas. Mike has one daughter, Hannah, a son-in-law, Jeremy and two grandsons, Malachi and Tobi.

Kelly’s calling is to help raise up a generation of fearless lovers of Jesus Christ. Along with helping her husband, Mike, to plant and pastor Lionheart Fellowship, Kelly is a Registered Nurse. She has a BA in Religious Studies and a BSN in Nursing, both from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro.
