Mike Carnicella

Director of Operations

Mike grew up in Zionsville, IN, a suburb on the north side of Indianapolis.  After high school he headed up the road to West Lafayette, to begin college at Purdue University (boiler up!).  In God's kind providence, Mike met his wife, Lindsey, and they were both baptized and married at Kossuth Street Baptist Church in Lafayette, IN.  From there, Mike and Lindsey headed down the road to Louisville for work and seminary.  God was kind again to lead Mike and Lindsey to Third Avenue, in 2010.  Eight years in Louisville and at Third Avenue have been formative.  Mike has worn many hats at Third Avenue, starting out as Pastoral Assistant, then Administrative Assistant, then Administrator, and now Director of Operations.  Mike is excited about what God is doing at Third Avenue and looks forward to the days ahead.  Mike enjoys spending free time reading fiction, climbing things, and giggling with his two kids, Leo and Lucia.
