Michael Bull Roberts is a widely requested renowned speaker who isn’t afraid to share his heart. His passionately told stories cut deep. His genuine desire to help shines through and he doesn’t apologize for his frankness and boldness in the Spirit. It’s heartbreaking but it is also a fresh, invigorating feeling to hear Michael speak so candidly about his life. No façade. No games. He tells it like it is and people listen. Michael didn’t have it easy growing up. Like any child, all he sought was to be loved and accepted. Instead, he faced physical, sexual and mental abuse. His bitterness festered. Soon he ended up on the street, seeking love and acceptance in all the wrong places. He became involved in a dark, white-supremacist culture, consumed by drugs, violence and greed. He was feared by many. The little boy whose only dream was to be loved and accepted for who he was had turned into a monster. But, even though Michael didn’t realize it at the time, God was pursuing him. It all came to what seemed like was going to be a tragic end to Michael’s life when his so-called friends turned on him and beat him. Then something happened. Something that would be a turning point in the life of this career criminal. God poured out his love in an amazing way. The Holy Spirit washed over Michael and the soul of a little boy seeking love emerged. Michael’s story hits a soul deep. The depth of despair that he felt was not too much for God, though. That’s the good news. Michael now loves to speak about how God redeemed and brought him out of the gutter and how he has opened so many doors for him. Surrendering to God wasn’t easy for this giant of a man, but once he did, he realized that the love of God was the answer. And it was just the beginning of an amazing journey. Michael has managed to go beyond the hate that was an integral part of his life, and, instead speaks of how Jesus rescued him and laid upon his heart to embark upon another kind of journey—one of forgiveness and healing and ministry. Michael Bull Roberts’ ministry has become a global adventure. He no longer cares about power and money and prestige. He lives day to day trusting God and heeded his direction to feed the hungry, love the downcast, heal the hurting. He has a passion for youth and for teaching and talking about the harm bullying does. Michael knows he is not perfect and that’s what attracts people to him. People can relate because of his ‘no games’ policy and his ability to be sensitive to the downtrodden and the marginalized. Anyone who hears Michael speak walks away with a better sense of God’s amazing grace.
