Life After Ministries Management Team
Michelle is a 6th generation Mormon who’s family background included polygamists. After a lifetime in the Mormon Church, Michelle left the church in search of the truth. Though she would find that lasting peace in Christ, it did come with a price. Michelle was totally rejected by her friends and family in Utah and treated like the worst kind of criminal. The Mormon Church has attempted to persuade her to come back to the Mormon Church and renounce her Christian faith, even going as far as pressuring her Mother. Since she left, the LDS Church has long persecuted her by using character assassination as their weapon. Ironically, although Michelle would once spit in the face of Ed Decker for his efforts to shed light on Mormon beliefs, she eventually joined forces with him and worked along side Mr. Decker at Saint Alive for 11 years. Michelle and her husband, Kirk, have two beautiful daughters, ages 20 and 18.
Kirk joined the Mormon Church in Thousand Oaks, CA. in 1981. Shortly afterwards, he joined the Air Force and was immediately stationed at Hill Air Force Base in Layton, Utah where he met and married Michelle Parker. Over the next 10 years he began questioning the teachings of the church and comparing it to the Biblical perspective which ultimately led to his discovery of the true Jesus Christ. Kirk and his family now reside in the Northwest where he and Michelle have ministered to countless Mormons. Kirk also came from a background of Masonry and has extensive knowledge about the Lodge and its affects upon the Christian’s life. Kirk retired from the Air Force Reserves and continues to work in the aviation industry.
