At Bloom, we desire to see all members of our community bloom into who they are created to be, because we are For the Ozarks
as God is For the Ozarks.
We believe this happens as people Believe, Belong, and Become.
Michael S Carlton
Michael S. Carlton is the lead pastor at Bloom Church, an exciting and fast-growing multi-site church! Since launching in 2013, Bloom has been on an exhilarating ride trying to keep up with all that God is doing. In March of 2013 Bloom Church had its first service with just 21 people on its launch team. Now just seven years later, Pastor Mike and his staff are so humbled to see God move in such a miraculous way with over 1,800 people calling Bloom Church home. The church has seen over 3,000 people commit their lives to Jesus, hundreds of families participate in life groups across our cities, and countless lives being transformed through a deeper walk with Jesus! Michael also has the honor of being a founding member of The Father Initiative led by Pastor Scott Wilson. This ministry not only plants 48 churches a year but also builds a fathering/mentoring network of pastors. These leaders walk beside new church planters and help them grow as pastors and leaders for their ministries. This provides new pastors insight as they begin the fathering/mentoring of their own church plants!
