Gail Micheff is the Family Ministries Director for the Michigan Conference. The only girl in a family of five brothers, she grew up in Battle Creek, Michigan, married her “Camp Au Sable” sweetheart, and started on her journey of being part of the Great Advent Movement: Texas, Michigan, Tennessee, Colorado, Wyoming, and back again to Michigan.

She has had the privilege of working with her husband Jim in pastoral ministry, youth/camp ministry, and family ministry. They have been married for 40 years and have four wonderful adult children (two boys & two girls) and seven amazing grandkids. In her leisure time, she loves being with her family, reading, hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, and anything else that is outdoors.



Amie Hubbard is the Family Ministries Assistant for the Michigan Conference. She is the mother of five wonderful children and two darling, twin granddaughters. The Lord has richly blessed her life with her husband Tom who loves the Lord and has been privileged to work by his side for 27 years, 12 of those years in pastoral ministry.  Amie loves children and families and is truly thankful for the opportunity to serve the Lord by ministering to families in Michigan. 

She loves all things outdoors; hiking, backpacking, canoeing in the Boundary Waters, biking, skating, hockey, exploring, and most of all being with her family.
