Michael graduated from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology. He was a deep thinker and lover of the Word of God. All who had the opportunity to know Michael, know that his life was centered in Christ, he lived humbly, loved deeply and respected all. Michael’s professional career spanned thirty two years at Kings View Work Experience Center in Atwater, California.

Michael accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the age of seventeen at First Baptist Church Atwater, California, there he served and worshiped for over forty years. He moved to Texas in 2017 and made First Baptist Church Marble Falls his home.

Michael loved camping, fishing and spending time with family, anyone who ever camped with him at Sunset Beach State Park on the Monterey Coast will never forget the experience! A BBQ aficionado was he, all who shared a dinner prepared by Michael Mast have had their taste buds forever spoiled to any other BBQ master.

Until the day we are reunited with Michael Dean Mast in heaven, we will miss him terribly, but we are all forever changed because we knew and were loved by him.

Mike was a student of mine at Atwater High School. He was a GREAT guy and model student. Lots of fun yet very serious in what he believed. I was also a friend of his mom and her former partner, Ken Gideon.

Mike was such a great friend and brother in Christ. We met at the 1st Baptist Church in Atwater in 1977 and quickly became friends. He had a strong relationship with Christ and demonstrated His love to our family in many ways through the years. It breaks my heart to know that he's no longer with us, but Jesus's death, burial, and resurrection give us assurance that we will fellowship and share our love for each other again when we're re-united in God's presence.
