Michael Poole is the Creative Arts Minister at Severns Valley in Elizabethtown, KY.
Michael believes in creating unity in Creative Teams that not only work well together but strive to close the distance from the platform to the booth. Michael experienced the entertainment industry early on as a young musician in Hollywood, which later became a passion for all aspects of media production. Michael studied at The Los Angeles Film School through Full Sail University. After graduating from LAFS, he learned a new love for storytelling, and he was accredited as a post-production editor for multiple festival award-winning short films. Michael started in technical theater, which gave him an excellent technical foundation that helped transition him into all aspects of creative arts and media production. Michael continued his career with IATSE, working from small black box theater shows to large-scale arena tours. He continued his experience as he moved to Louisville, KY, to take a position at WHAS 11, an ABC news affiliate. Michael has volunteered in worship arts since he was young, working at different churches across Southern California until he accepted his call into full-time ministry in 2013. He aspires to utilize Creative Arts as one of the most powerful ways to assist in the communication of the Gospel.
