Michael Eakins

IT Director

I started my IT career working in a small private computer repair shop owned by an old friend of mine who introduced me to the world of computers back when I was a freshman in college. From there through training, diligence, and hard work I advanced to the rank of a senior network engineer contractor within the financial industry. However, I never was quite satisfied with my work and felt I should be using my skills for a different purpose. Back in September 2008, I accepted a temporary position at Northwest Bible Church to help fill in after the previous IT director left. After working for Northwest I felt like I found my calling and accepted the position fulltime in November 2008 and have been blessed to serve ever since.    

I grew up in a Christian home in the St. Louis area and accepted Christ at an early age, but didn’t really start following Him until I met my wife, a pious woman who brought the word of God more into my life to help form my spiritual foundation.    

I enjoy spending time with my wife of 11 years and my two children, watching history  documentaries, going to the gym, and tinkering around on our family’s and friends’ computers since I am a techie after all.
