Mike and his family spent 22 years in France, North Africa and the Middle East, working among Muslims and Christians – learning how the gospel is impacting Islamic communities.  After leaving the Middle East in 2005, Mike returned to the US where he served for 6 years as a pastor in Knoxville, Tennessee. Currently, Mike is involved with theological education in Beirut, Lebanon.

Having graduate degrees in both Theology and Arabic Language and Literature, Mike is now pursuing a PhD from the Oxford Center for Mission Studies in Muslim-Christian relations during the 11th century, in hopes that it might inform the church today.

In the aftermath of 9/11 and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Mike sensed that Christian rhetoric among US Christians regarding Muslims was often a poor reflection of the gospel. He began to speak and write as an advocate for a “Kingdom vision” of the Muslim world, writing the book Fresh Vision for the Muslim World to give voice to his convictions. With practical suggestions, Kuhn helps readers leave the path of isolation, fear and self-preservation and choose a less-traveled road: a path of self-awareness, empathy, and deep listening. Mike is married to Stephanie and they have 3 daughters, two sons-in-law and three grandsons! In his free time, Mike enjoys playing guitar and banjo.
