Michael Gantt Ministries

Sharpening the Iron of the Church

About MK Gantt

Michael Gantt started out as a gospel singer in his teens, began preaching at 14 and in the course of the past 50 years he and his wife Barbara have raised up a large, vibrant family of musicians, singers, and preachers.  He preached from the same pulpit for almost 38 years before turning over the leadership of the church to his oldest son.

Though Michael remains active in the local church, assisting his son wherever needed, he also maintains an active missionary ministry in East Africa as he has for over three decades, doing leadership training, church planting, and an exciting ministry to the Deaf through the Immanuel Christian School for the Deaf.

Michael travels extensively throughout the United States, as a guest preacher at churches of all denominations, a conference speaker in family life conferences, mission conferences and writers conferences.  He is a regular faculty member with the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference and the Colorado Christian Writers Conferences both as a Keynote speaker and workshop leader.

Michael is the author of five books to date.  EDDIE is a humorous record of a family vacation filled with strong, easily applicable truths woven throughout the hilarious adventures with Michael and his wife, Barbara, and their antique motor home.  Still one of his most popular books.  MAKUTANO is a chronicle of stories gathered from three decades of missionary work in East Africa and other places.  Filled with humor, adventure, danger, and great spiritual truth, MAKUTANO is a must-read for mission-minded folks.  In November of 2018, Logos Publications released Michael’s book, CRY MERCY.  Cry Mercy is a watchman on the wall volume; a warning to the nation that judgment is imminent if we do not turn back to God.  In May 2019, Michael released a sequel to CRY MERCY.  CRY REPENT is a blunt appeal to the Body of Christ to return to the preaching of confession and repentance as a critical part of the gospel message.  Michael Gantt also has co-authored a valuable resource for writers who are struggling to gain, or maintain their vision.  He and Barbara Haley worked together to publish SLEEPING NEAR THE ARK, Writing with a Fresh Vision in 2019.

Michael has released two books in 2020:  OLD PATHS AND ANCIENT MARKERS, Guarding the Treasure of the Gospel was released in March and  OVER AND ABOVE, Pursuing a Life of Excellence was released in July.

Old Paths and Ancient Markers is a book that stresses that the key to the restoration of our nation is found in the restoration of families. It is an important book that every parent should read and every pastor should recommend.

OVER AND ABOVE has a companion volume, OVER AND ABOVE STUDY GUIDE, and together they provide the reader/student with powerful insights into the Word of God and God’s divine destiny for all of us.

All of Michael’s books are available on Amazon.com (in paperback and ebook format) and on this site here.

Quotes from Michael Gantt:

“Preacher, if the majesty of the person of Jesus Christ and the power of His gospel hasn’t found its way into your sermon- you’re not done yet.” 

“In an effort to be the church with a more appealing message we have become a church with no message.”

“If there ever was a cry for a pure, prophetic voice; if there ever was a cry for intercession to rise up for the land – that cry comes from God Himself: ‘I sought for a man who would stand in the gap.'”
