Michael Harris in Concert at First Baptist Church of Camarillo on Sunday Morning during our Worship Service @ 10:30 a.m. Please bring your family and invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Come and be blessed by his testimony and music.
Michael was drowning in a sea of drugs and alcohol, but God delivered him by way of the One Step Program (Psalm 40:1-3). He cried out to God and today he shares his miraculous life story that only Christ can give. He is now the President of “Restoration in the Son Ministries International”.
Michael has appeared on various Christian telecasts and radio stations, including TBN, and “One Hundred Huntley Street“, Canadian Broadcasting Christian Network, Toronto, Canada. His testimony and music on the “It is Written” telecast with Mark Finley, has blessed millions throughout the world. Michael has appeared on the “Three Angels Broadcasting Network”, the “Hope Channel”, My Story, My Song, with Kandace Thorpe, along with Elder Don Schneider, on “Really Living”. He recently was invited at 3ABN to do an entire one-hour concert called, “An Evening with Michael Harris”, giving his miraculous conversion story along with his music.
Michael is a member of the “The Voice of Prophecy” Family Reunion DVD’s, and has been interviewed by Elder Lonnie Melashanko on the “Voice of Prophecy” radio program. He has also been invited to sing at four General Conference Sessions, including the most recent at GC 2015 in San Antonio. Michael is also passionate about doing Prison Ministry where he inspires inmates to place their trust in Christ alone.
Along with various church outreaches, Michael loves to visit the incarcerated populations around the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ setting the captives free. He has appeared with Elder Doug Bachelor, on “The Amazing Facts” television. Now for more than 26 years, Michael has shared his music and testimony in 50 states, and 25 countries, which includes the United States, Canada, Caribbean Islands, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Fiji Islands. He is regularly invited to present his ministry at Camp meetings, including Big Camp, in Queensland Australia and Camp Meeting in Perth, Australia as well as all denominational churches, prisons and Men’s Retreats.
But nothing captures the heart like his live presentations with power point images which are extremely passionate and spirit-filled. You must see him to experience God’s life changing power. Michael knows that without Christ he can do nothing and solely depends on the Holy Spirit working in and through him.
Come and be blessed by his testimony and music.
Be sure to invite friends, neighbors, co-workers and your family.

Media Biography for Russ Miller
Russ has authored 5 creation-oriented books, including his new book “The COSt,” written and illustrated 2 coloring books for kids, developed CESM’s: website (www.CreationMinistries.Org); 16 PowerPoint seminars; DVD Series & Study Guide; Grand Canyon Rim, Raft & Grand Staircase Tours; radio programs, led dozens of Grand Canyon creation-based river rafting trips and more. He has presented thousands of church messages and seminars, spoken on college campuses, at national conferences and appeared on worldwide Christian television programs.
Russ has daily posts on FaceBook & Twitter, always encouraging people worldwide to believe the Bible—Word for Word and cover to cover.
Russ has 174 college credits and is an effective communicator with teens, college students and adults. In fact, sharing the information in easy-to-understand messages is his best gift.
After building a successful nationwide firm, Russ gave it away in 2000 to form CESM. A former Theistic Evolutionist, Russ now ministers to Christians and non-Christians alike, stating: “I am not attacking anyone who has been misled into believing in Darwinism, Theistic Evolution or Progressive Creation. I am here to help them, just as someone helped me.”
Russ states, “I’m a General Manager and make logical decisions based on facts. After I saw observable science doesn’t support Darwinism or old-earth beliefs I realized these false teachings are undermining the world’s faith in Jesus Christ. Now I am doing something to help. I don’t tell people what to think; I present facts from science and the Bible. Through the Holy Spirit those with ears to hear will hear, and those with eyes to see will see.”
