Pastor Michael Rackley, Ph.D., D.Min.

President/Founder of Sound the Shophar Ministries Inc. 


Hello, I'm Pastor Michael Rackley and I want to welcome you to Sound the Shophar Ministries!  I am really excited about the new things the Lord is doing in the Body of Christ and am looking forward to the future of what the Lord has in store.


I believe God has called me to preach and evangelize the Gospel of Jesus Christ both in spoken word and in literature and my goal is to encourage, to teach, and to minister the Word of God in order to win souls for Christ.


The Lord has given me a mission that can be found in Acts 26:18 AMP: 

"To open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Me."


I am believing God for 1,000,000 plus young people of all races to be de saved and discipled within the next five years through this evangelistic arm of the church.

Sound the Shophar Ministries Inc.
Founded in 2011

Sound the Shophar Ministries is a Christian Pro-Israel ministry that is operating to reach the lost. The ministry's name derives from a practice of the Old Testament of when an appointed person would blow a rams horn to call for humility, call for praise and worship, call for healing, call for spiritual warfare, and to announce Christ imminent return. I believe this ministry is called to do the same. 


As an Evangelistic-Arm of the Church, its purpose is to “contend for the faith” (Jude 1:3)  of our youth, teens, millennials and the young at heart in the midst of a prevailing culture. This can only be done by rebuilding the biblical foundations of faith in Jesus Christ, through raising the bar of expectations, increase hunger for Christ, and to call for deep convictions based on scripture.
