Founder and Executive Director
Pastor Mike Rubino is a leader who loves the local church. Over the course of 20 years he has helped launched church plants, re-plants, and revitalized multiple churches in the Northeast.
When God first called Michael to minister in the Northeast many church leaders told him it was the graveyard for the local church. However, it was in those moments that he felt the Holy Spirit conviction that there was no better place to see God’s resurrection power in person then a graveyard!
Under his leadership and shepherding Cornerstone Bible Church has transitioned from a declining mono-chromatic church barely surviving to a thriving multi-cultural expression of God’s kingdom in their community.
Pastor Mike’s vision is that every local community have a healthy local church. This requires raising up and resourcing leaders to plant, re-plant, and revitalize churches. To make that vision a reality he launched the Revitalize Conference now a part of the recently founded Church Revitalize Center.
As a certified Church coach specializing in both church Re-planting and Revitalization Pastor Mike has the passion, training, and calling to serve churches in need. He has been blessed to have Dr. Thom Rainer as his mentor and is actively partnering with his organization, Church Answers.
Pastor Mike holds a Doctorate in Education, Leadership and Technology, MA’s in both Theology and Business Administration and a BA in Psychology. He is married to his 7th Grade Christian School sweetheart and has two teenagers who love the Lord and have caused him to go bald prematurely!
The Church Revitalize Center is an organization dedicated to helping churches "Wake up, Grow Healthy and Live Again (Rev.3:2, paraphrase). We help organizations by providing four resources that fit your budget or stage in your revitalization journey: Conversations, Conferences, Courses and Coaching.
