You will cheer as you hear Michael Summers, CEO of Summers Flooring & Design in Central Oregon, describe how his family’s local third generation flooring company has created a long line of “flooring pastors.” This ethic has provided a ministry that has resulted in fellowship and work and purpose for hundreds of troubled people who were saved while they were Michael’s employees and customers over the company’s 65+ year history.

For the last few years, Michael has played drums and performed vocally in an extremely popular band called “Precious Byrd.” “Precious Byrd” plays across the nation and features Grammy award winning bassist Lonnie Chapin and saxophone player Andy Warr, known for his work on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
