Torch Talk

Our torch talks provide a forum for transparency, challenge and encouragement as we listen to inspiring stories from community friends. Often as we listen, God reminds us we have a story to share too.

Come hear from a successful Vestavia business leader, Michael O’Neal, as he takes us on a journey and challenges us, “Don’t Waste Your Life.”

Raised in a home anchored by faith and family, Michael began his walk with the Lord at a very young age. After graduating from Samford University in 1993, he began his career with State Farm Insurance and currently serves as a State Farm Agent in Vestavia Hills, Alabama.

In January of 2009, the Lord called Michael to begin a missions mobilization ministry called Reel Life International (www.Reel-Life.org). Reel Life works alongside the church to help engage God’s people in His great mission so that we may be known as “fishers of men.”

The Lord’s grace is evident in Michael’s
life as his passion for the gospel
leads him to mobilize, teach and
train others to live intentionally for
the sake of the lost for the glory of
God. He is married to his wife, Summer,
and they have 2 sons
(Griffin & Anderson) and
a daughter (Collier).
