Michael Phillips is an author, entrepreneur, IT industry leader, father, husband and Christian. His business success and personal faith journey have helped him build a distinguished career focused on impacting people and organizations in positive ways.
Upon graduation from LSU in 2000, Michael started an IT consulting firm and within twelve months merged with another local firm to form Sparkhound, a Louisiana-based IT services company. As an owner/partner and COO, Michael helped Sparkhound achieve 250 percent growth between 2008 and 2012 and positioned the company among the most respected and fasting growing IT consulting firms in the country with more than 230 team members and nearly 30 million in annual revenues.
Michael left Sparkhound to launch the ALL IN MOVEMENT in 2013 after more than 15 years in the IT industry. On the night of June 29, 2012, God called Michael “all in” and gave him a mission to reignite the hearts of an apathetic American Church. The very next day, the Lord had Michael give his truck away to a stranger in a donut store parking lot and his “all in” journey officially began. As a faith-forward Christian, he considers ALL IN and its mission his personal calling.
Michael works with faith-leaders and organizations across America to re-ignite and refresh the hearts of God’s people through his testimony and the anointing that God has placed upon his life. In 2016 the All In Movement launched the EveryChurch initiative, an effort designed to counter the destructive anti-God narrative of the enemy by giving every church and ministry in America a voice to reach its people daily.
Michael holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Management Information Systems from Louisiana State University and is an ordained minister of the Gospel. He, his wife Cheri and their three children live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
