Michigan - Norm Byers
Norm Byers is the founding pastor of Genesis Church in Petoskey, Michigan. Norm and his wife, Brenda moved from West Michigan to start a "mother church" from scratch in Petoskey. Sent from their first church start-up, The Journey of Cedar Springs, Genesis Church was launched in 2005. Since leaving their comfort zone of West Michigan, both Brenda and Norm have developed a deep affinity for the people of this region. In the fall of 2010, Genesis Church planted a second location in Boyne City, MI. Norm is the Regional Church Planting Director for Michigan. Both Norm and Brenda graduated from college with degrees in Communications and have served the Lord overseas, on college campuses and on staff in a local church setting. Norm writes a weekly column in the Petoskey News. They have three children and enjoy taking walks together. They also enjoy family time skiing in the winter and camping in their pop-up camper in the summer.
