About Rev. Michael Dixon: The Rev. Michael Dixon is the third pastor in the history of Christ Ridge Presbyterian Church. Michael and his wife Nikki have been married for more than eleven years. They have two young children, Lewellyn (7) and Boston (5). They met after Nikki had graduated from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and while she was a member of Christ Ridge Presbyterian. Little did they know that almost 4 years later Michael would be called to be the pastor of her home church.
Michael grew up in Charlotte, NC as a covenant child of Christ Covenant Church PCA. He attended Covenant College from 1997-2001 and earned a BA in History. He moved back to Charlotte and attended Reformed Theological Seminary, earning a Masters of Divinity from the school in 2005. He began working in youth ministry in the PCA in Atlanta in 1999 in various churches and positions. Michael was ordained as a PCA pastor in November of 2007 and was called to Christ Ridge as their pastor in March of 2008. He has a great passion to see people walk with Christ, and to see the church continue to be healthy through the teaching of the Word, prayer, and worship.
10:1 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber.2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.3 To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.5 A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.”6 This figure of speech Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them.
