Meet the Legacy Builders


Mike Baese executive director of Legacy Builders ministries with his family

Mike Baese

Executive Director

Mike is the perfect example of a businessman who struggled to find purpose and whose life was changed by the Good News. Mike served in several sales and management roles from 2004 to 2014 with three international companies. He was focused on financial and professional success but was spending most of his life pursuing things that make no difference in eternity.

In 2007, he met Stan Bower, who discipled him in the Christian faith for five years. This life-changing one-on-one relationship led Mike out of the business world and into full-time ministry to people in business just like him. He now devotes his time to helping men discover their biblical purpose and become ambassadors for Christ in their home, community, and respective fields of business.

When he’s not making disciples, you can find him camping, hiking, shooting guns, and cutting down trees at his property. (Strange hobbies for a man who loathes ticks and snakes). He also enjoys bicycling, listening to expository preaching, writing, and spending time with his family. Mike and his wife, Michelle, have been married for twenty years and have two children, Olivia & Christian. The most recent addition to their household is a German Shorthaired Pointer named Chloe, who eats too many treats and struggles with obedience.

Favorite Bible verse:
Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness. (Romans 4:4-5)
