    Mike Ashcraft went to college to become an architect. A self-described “completely average” teenager growing up outside of Atlanta, Ashcraft says he was 5’3” and weighed less than 100 pounds when he got his driver’s license at the age of 16. Now, 30 years later, Mike Ashcraft has become a heavyweight. Not in a physical way, but in a spiritual one. He co-founded Port City Community Church in 1999, which has grown to have more than 5,000 members in 2017.
