Mike
Signorelli

 

 

As a pastor, Mike is the founder of V1 Church, a vibrant and growing community of believers across the globe. With physical church locations in Long Island, Brooklyn, Miami, and Northwest Indiana, he also has a global church community with hundreds of online watch parties meeting weekly. V1 was listed at No. 26 in Outreach Magazine’s “Outreach 100 Fastest-Growing Churches” in America in 2023 and has been called the “fastest-growing church in America” by INJOY Stewardship Solutions. 

 

Mike is an accomplished author, having self-published several books that have been well-received by audiences around the world. After the success of his self-published works, he signed with a major publishing house to produce his next book, Inheriting Freedom, which releases in October 2024. His writing is insightful and poignant, and he draws from life experiences and the truth of the Bible to encourage believers to pursue freedom in Christ.

 

After escaping the poverty of his early years, Mike was motivated to help young families thrive. Seeing many people struggle for basic necessities in New York City Metro, he and his wife Julie responded by creating a non-profit called V1 Community Impact. Consequently, the foundation provides a Christmas miracle to hundreds of people in shelters between Brooklyn and Long Island. In addition, hundreds of families receive food monthly through the foundation’s philanthropic work.  

 

In 2023, Mike wrote and directed the movie The Domino Revival, based on his own life story.  The compelling documentary traces how he received his call to ministry as a young child from impoverished beginnings and eventually grew to lead a worldwide revival alongside other revivalists.  The film played in over 1000 theaters nationwide and moviegoers experienced healing, deliverance, salvation, and canceled suicides.    

 

Aside from his work as a content creator, filmmaker, pastor, author, and philanthropist, Mike is also a sought-after speaker who travels the world speaking at church gatherings, conferences, tent revivals, and festivals.  

 

Mike and Julie have two daughters, Everly Faith and Bella Joy. They currently reside in New York City.
