Covenant Pastor

Mike Wakeland

Mike Wakeland, our Covenant Pastor, has been married to his wife Cindy for 28 years.  Cindy, a “PK" (preacher’s kid), works in a church in Urbana.  Their daughter Sarah recently graduated from the University of Illinois and lives and works in Chicago.  Mike and Cindy say they are “staff” to Emira, their Golden Retriever, and Gus the Hamster.

Mike graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 1991 and has served churches in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Illinois.  He previously served as Director of Service Learning at Millikin University and as an Army Chaplain.  Mike is currently a chaplain in the Illinois National Guard.  He is a devoted fan of the St. Louis Blues and loves chess, movies, preaching, and the Beatles.  He firmly believes that a life spent in search of the perfect chocolate chip mint ice cream is a life well spent.
