iREVeRANT is written by Rev. Mike Baughman–a United Methodist pastor.  While his views do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the UMC or his current congregation, they are certainly influenced by Wesleyan understanding, his love of the church and strong desire to be a part of reforming it.

A New Jersey native, Mike currently serves in Texas which is where God called him by inspiring Mike to fall in love with a Texan.  That Texas is also a Methodist minister.  Together they have four children.  You can learn more about Mike, his speaking schedule, writing and social media consulting at  (yes, he feels really, really awkward having .com attached to his name).
