Michael Durham

Michael Durham is pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church in Paducah, Ky. He preached for over a decade before God truly converted him. Before that time, he was merely following the path of man’s religion, believing himself to be saved because of a prayer he prayed when he was five. God did call Michael into the ministry after his conversion and in 1993 he accepted the pastorate at Oak Grove. In 1995, the church launched a ministry called Living Priorities. It began as a radio broadcast and expanded into Internet and publishing mediums. In 2008, Living Priorities became Real Truth Matters.
