Michelle Lang is Director of Campus Ministries at Warner Pacific College in Portland. Day-to-day, Michelle oversees spiritual formation programs and provides pastoral care to students, staff and faculty.
Before her work at Warner, Michelle lent her ministerial skill & services to various organizations in Seattle, including World Vision, University Presbyterian Church, Emerald City Outreach Ministries and Young Life.
In the domain of performing arts, Michelle was mentored by the legendary Ms. Ruby Dee, at the Arena Stage in Washington, DC. Returning to the Pacific Northwest, she became the Music Director of Seattle's Teen Summer Musical. Michelle has provided management and content to local radio & television, the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, ACT Theater, along with numerous projects in Seattle Public Schools, and Parks & Recreation.
Michelle's work weaves common threads of urban development, racial reconciliation, art as activism, and youth & family services. For more than two decades, her guiding passions have been to paint pictures of the Gospel, help people make connections that lend to a meaningful life and validate the voice of the marginalized.
In her "spare time," Michelle fronts a contemporary gospel band—the first gospel performers to sell out Seattle's 2500-seast Benaroya Hall—and she tours with a newly formed acting troupe specializing in helping teams, congregations and campuses facilitate tough talks on controversial subjects.
Michelle earned her BA in Psychology from Seattle Pacific University and is currently pursuing a Masters in Religion & Theology.
