Michael Truss

Associate Soul Care Minister

I grew up in a Christian home, but at a young age I heavily struggled with the knowledge of my sin. I felt like a horrible person because of it. Through several youth pastors and other influences on my life, the Gospel was shared with me and I clearly understood how vast God’s grace is through Jesus Christ. I accepted Christ in high school and began to follow Him at age 17. Ever since then my understanding of His grace and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross has grown exponentially. I constantly discover my need for redemption and His grace. Jesus is my Lord and my Shepherd.

I grew up with Christ Chapel being my home church. I felt God’s call to ministry during college, after all the events that lead me to faith in High school. However I was afraid to follow God’s call, and I ran from Him. After graduation I continued to run, seeking wealth in the working world but continued to only find dissatisfaction. Through that dissatisfaction I started volunteering at Christ Chapel which made God’s call even louder and more apparent in my life. Finally after many conversations and much prayer, I submitted to God’s leading and quit my job to pursue ministry. It was just at that time that a position opened up at Christ Chapel in the Grow Ministry, which allowed for me to also attend Southwestern Seminary. I give God the Glory for all of these details! There is no way all of this could have happened without His hand at work.

I’m a Fort Worth native and lived the majority of my life right next to the TCU area. My wife, Liz and I, graduated from Ouachita Baptist University. We were married in 2010 have been so blessed to share in this incredible journey of life together. We like to spend a lot of time together going out and doing fun activities.  I love to collect comic books and watch movies.  We love our families and we deeply love our dog, Penny.
