Meet Reverend Michael McLaughlin

Knoxville native and UT graduate Michael McLaughlin found work in Kentucky in the mental health field where he and his wife started attending First Presbyterian Church in Somerset, KY. What began as helping out with the youth Sunday school led to Michael becoming involved with more and more church activities - such as choir. In 2005, he would go on to attend Columbia Theological Seminar before being called to serve at several churches in Tennessee and Mississippi. Now, Reverend Michael McLaughlin serves as senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Cookeville. He joins Denna Hornby this week to share the story of his calling.
