The Purpose of the Power for Living Ministry is to communicate a positive Christian message and empower people to achieve success through the motivational and inspirational teaching of sacred truth.

Dr. Michael A. Cramer

Dr. Michael A. Cramer is the founder of the Power for Living Ministry. He is a gifted communicator and inspirational leader.  Mike believes in a positive faith, which embraces the powerful truth that: "with God all things are possible."  His emphasis on positive faith encourages people from all walks of life, and connects with leaders in the faith, business, and athletic communities.  For more than three decades, Mike has also served as Senior Pastor of New Life Church in Osceola, IN.  His motivational speaking, inspirational books, radio broadcast, and online sermons have expanded the ministry far beyond the borders of New Life.  Mike is richly blessed to have his beautiful and loving wife, Cindi, at his side.  As parents, they have faced the agonizing pain of losing their twenty-eight year old son.  As ministry partners, they have walked through the valley of grief with countless hurting families. They have the credibility and compassion to comfort the walking wounded.  Mike and Cindi have four grown children (Joseph is with the Lord) and eight grandchildren.
