Speaker • Author • Blogger • Pastor “I speak and write to encourage courage — because at this particular time in history, courage matters more than ever.”
— Michael Anthony
“Life is too short to pursue anything less than your passion,” says Michael Anthony Paolicelli (pal-uh-chell-ee), who simply goes by his first and middle names: Michael Anthony. And he should know – his life to date has been marked by serious adversity, including multiple brushes with death, a battle with cancer, surviving several kidnapping/luring attempts as a child, and being estranged from his father for many years before an amazing reconciliation. These challenges have helped Michael to inspire, challenge and motivate others to think deeply, live courageously and to squeeze every drop out of life, which he does through his work as an award-winning speaker, author and blogger. If you’re looking for someone to ignite your people with humble courage, Mike is your match. Michael is an outside-the-box, innovative leader who loves people and is regularly featured in major publications and news outlets around the world. Whether speaking or writing, he always looks for ways to help people reach their greatest potential and discover, develop and live with courage in every area of life. Hailed as a “modern-day Jonathan Edwards,” Michael has been called an “extraordinary” communicator with a “teachable” and “humble spirit” noted for his eloquence and the rare combination of a passionate, prophetic voice and a genuinely humble approach to dialogue. Listening to or watching him communicate is always engaging, enlightening and inspiring.
Michael began inspiring people by giving short messages on a train station platform in New Brunswick, New Jersey. It’s what laid the groundwork for what would become a career communicating to diverse crowds around the world, in more than twenty countries, on four continents. His Godfactor® radio broadcast in the United States has potential reach of 2-3 million people. He and his wife, Janet, are co-founders of The National Week of Repentance™, and Godfactor®, Inc., a non-profit ministry that helps people discover and enjoy God with podcasts, videos and written resources.
