by our clients.
- Mary A. Gross, Director, InfoTAP
Celebrate Your Marriage had quickly grown beyond the capabilities of our website. We had an idea of what we needed; Mike Atkinson surpassed those needs and provided a site that will continue to grow with us. Mikes expertise is usability. Our customers tend to be Internet novices; Mikes design layout, navigation, and knowledge of Internet standards guides our visitors to the information they need immediately.
As the manager of our site, I am downright giddy with the tool Mike provides to maintain and edit the content. This was an unexpected perk that is so user-friendly with immediate results on the site.
And, as a non-profit organization, we appreciate Mikes sensitivity to
budget concerns. We have had increased traffic, conference registrations
and booking inquiries as a direct result of Mike's work. People are even finding
us more quickly through search engines because of his knowledge and expertise.
- Diane Laffoon, Web Manager, Celebrate Your Marriage Conferences
Mike and his uneekNet team gave us a complete web makeover. They transformed
our previously dull and boring web site into an attractive and useful tool that
truly communicates who we are and what we do. And I was amazed by how quickly
and effortlessly it all came together. Now we not only look good, but we're
serving our customers and clients much more effectively.
- Wayne Rice, president/founder, Understanding Your Teenager

When I think of Mike Atkinson, I think character--responsible, reliable, honest,
dependable, and disciplined. Mike helped guide my ministry as director and as
board chairman through thick and thin for nearly twenty years. He continues to
be my closest confidant because he is the one person who can translate my "wild
hare" ideas into a plan of action with goals, objectives, and direction.
- Al Menconi, President, Al Menconi Ministries

He puts tough concepts into common language and has given me great
ideas to take our Internet business to a deeper level of professionalism.
I would recommend his skills to anyone wanting a better website.
- Doug Fields, President, Simply Youth Ministry; author, Purpose Driven Youth Ministry
"Mike has done a marvelous website for us for 3 years now. His design
eye and execution of same is first-rate. He has guided us through the process
to arrive at a site that has all the key information necessary, but not more
than needed. That is just one of many assets he brought to the project.
And the end result has worked! Many of our golfers mention the site every year,
and they always love seeing the photos we take of them and that Mike quickly
gets on the site. Plus many of our sponsors have commented positively about
the site and appreciate the links to their own sites."
- Joe Nemeth, Tournament Director, Stan Atkinson Golf Classic
Mike is a rare bird...a unique creature! His awesome blend of technical skills,
natural gifts, and authentic personality make him the ideal partner when
considering a major Internet initiative. His web experience and instinctive
discernment, combined with compelling relational skills, make Mike a valued
partner and trusted ally. It has always been a pleasure to work with Mike. Our
Internet presence has been advanced and sharpened through his influence.
- Doug Tegner, Executive Director, National Network of Youth Ministries
In my years
of working with Mike at Youth Specialties, partnering in ministry at
our local church, and admiring his leadership on the Gospelcom.net board,
I've seen firsthand how he can bring his experience, ministry heart,
and great personality to bear to assist organizations of all kinds in
maximizing the effectiveness of their Internet presence.
- Noel Becchetti, President, Center for Student Missions
CPR had a website before we had worked with Mikey, and we had even experienced
a certain level of success with it. But we had a feeling that it could
do more. One of the things that impressed me was that Mike asked questions
we had never thought of, and made us think outside of the box. His creativity
was obvious, and we really benefited from his experience. After our
new site launched, we noticed the difference immediately. We were more
than pleased with the design and layout, and we got ten times the traffic
immediately. Updates have been no problem at all, and we still get comments
on the site, even though it's been up and running for a few years. Overall,
the experience was great, and I love the way that Mike weaves together
his creativity, technical expertise, and his experience to make
the web a functional tool for us.
- Pete Vandersluis, CPR Improv
I've known Mike since 1995, when we began serving together as part of
10 charter members of Gospelcom. Mike has the unique ability to understand
the issues associated with Internet communication and how ministries
can do it better. I served with Mike on the Gospelcom Advisory Council
for many years and I appreciate the depth of his knowledge, experience,
and heart for the Lord. He is a class act and raises the standards
for online ministry.
- Dwight E. Anderson, Senior Internet Producer, International Bible Society
We sought Mike's advice because of his experience building and sustaining
the Internet's best youth ministry website and mailing lists. Mike's
broad experience helped us to clarify our web strategy and gave us
sound advice on many technical implementation details. Mike is a
walking encyclopedia of resources and tools that make building and maintaining
successful websites simpler. From the local school shootings to the
recent Billy Graham Youth Night (Velocity), San Diego's youth leadership
has unanimously called upon Mike for Internet support for major events.
And Mike has delivered!
- Frank Overton, San Diego Discovery Centers
Mike Atkinson has been supporting the Youthworker Journal website
since its beginning. His creativity and customer orientation have contributed
enormously to the success of our site. This man understands websites
and how people use them!
- Rick Edwards, Executive Editor, Youthworker Journal
Mike Atkinson's expertise in the interview screening process was extremely
helpful to us. Mike's insight and ability to sift through information
was valuable in knowing if a future job candidate would succeed or not
with us. We would definitely recommend his services.
- Mark A. Brown, Vice President of Marketing, American Tract Society
Mike Atkinson was a tremendous resource throughout DCLA 2003's web development
process. In addition, Mike came in to be with our team and helped us
assess and adjust our whole site. Mike brings a wealth of wisdom technically,
but brings with that a well rounded knowledge of marketing, customer
service, sales, and general management issues. He's the most well
rounded techie I know! His wisdom and perspective has been a tremendous
asset to our ministry. Plus, he's fun to work with! I highly recommend
Mike's work, wisdom, technical proficiency, heart for ministry, and
