Reverend Michael White is a priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and pastor of Church of the Nativity in Timonium, Maryland. He is an award winning, best-selling co-author of the books Rebuilt, Tools for RebuildingRebuilding Your Message, and Churchmoney with hundreds of thousands in combined sales, translated into seven languages. Many say Rebuilt has changed the conversation about parish mission and culture in the American Catholic Church and influenced parish rebuilding efforts around the world.  Father White has spoken at diocesan gatherings and church conferences nationally and internationally.
Father White earned his bachelor’s degree from Loyola University, Maryland and his graduate degrees from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. After being ordained a priest, he worked as the priest-secretary to Cardinal William Keeler, who was then the Archbishop of Baltimore.  During that time, he served as the director of the papal visit of Saint John Paul II to Baltimore, Maryland.
During Father White’s tenure as pastor of the Church of the Nativity, the parish has almost tripled in weekend attendance to more than 4,000.  Church of the Nativity recently completed construction of a new $16 million church seating 1,500 people. The project was completed on schedule and without debt.
His newest book, Churchmoney: Rebuilding the Way We Fund Our Mission, will be released this fall.
