Pastor Mike Riggins
A native Hoosier, Pastor Mike Riggins attended Bloomington North High School, where he met his wife Linda. They graduated from Indiana University and he went on to Princeton Theological Seminary while she taught. Upon ordination Mike served as an Associate Pastor for youth in suburban St. Louis. Five years later he accepted the call to pastor the First Presbyterian Church of Seymour, Indiana. In 1997 he and Linda joined a group of elders in planting a new congregation in Traverse City, Michigan. They served with that church for the next twenty-one years.
The Riggins’ daughter Laura is on leave from teaching Kindergarten in Carmel so she can be a stay-at-home mom. She and husband Sam, a Certified Financial Planner, have a son named Theo and a daughter named Rory.
Son Dan practices Pediatrics at Cook County General Hospital in Chicago while pursuing a Masters in Public Health/Data at Northwestern University. His wife Lauren Hall implements secondary curricula in school systems and is pursuing a PhD in education/public policy.
Mike and Linda love their pit bull Brianna, their cat Isiah (named for I. Thomas who brought home the national championship while they watched from the IU Pep Band), running and cycling. Mike enjoys building furniture and other things; Linda loves her once a week journey to care for Theo and Rory.
