Former United Pursuit member-turned-worship pastor at Influence Church, Michael Ketterer, was rewarded with the golden buzzer on “America’s Got Talent” this week after his touching performance brought Simon Cowell and the judges to their feet.
Upon hitting the stage, Ketterer said he was there with his wife and six children, five of whom are foster children.
No matter who you are or what you have done, you are qualified to be a part of God’s family.❤❤

“My family is the reason I’m here,” Ketterer told the judges before belting out his number. “One of the things that happens, especially because my children came out of foster care, when you’re surviving, you can’t dream. And that has been one of the most rewarding things — providing them with a home and a safe environment where they are free to dream.”
“I’m here because I want to show them that if their dad can live out their dreams then nothing is impossible for them,” he added.
When asked what kind of work he does, the worship pastor revealed that he is also a pediatric mental health nurse in Orange County, California.
