Mike Taliaferro graduated from Abilene Christian University with a bachelors degree in Bible. Mike and Anne-Brigitte Taliaferro have been in San Antonio since 2003. Mike serves as the Lead Evangelist, and Anne-Brigitte as the Senior Women’s Ministry Leader. They have directed churches in the United States, Brazil, and several African countries. Mike speaks Portuguese well and French badly. Anne-Brigitte is fluent in both. The Taliaferro’s lived in Africa for 14 years helping to plant churches in over 40 nations. They have three sons and a wonderful daughter-in-law, and are avid Spurs fans. Mike rides a Kawasaki, but only to save on gas.



When I started this ministry in '06 my goal was to help 30 Christians who, like me, were same-sex attracted. Since those humble beginnings SIW has helped thousands in 58 countries. I've taught over 100,000 people in churches, universities, and faith-based groups globally, have written six books and have had a documentary movie made about my life and this ministry called FINDING GUY.

Before I became a Christian I lived an active gay life until I was 24 years old. After becoming a Christian I left that life behind forever. Over the years God has blessed my life tremendously. I married my best friend, Cathy, in 1991 and have four amazing kids. My interests? I am a news junkie, love anything political, love to read, and am an avid hockey and baseball fan.
