Associate Pastor, Mike Caforio

My wife Louanne and I, and our two children, Matthew 21, and Hannah 19, have lived in North Providence since 2002.

As a young couple, we started attending Restoration Church (formerly NPAG) in 1995. From our first visit in September of that year, we knew we were home. A month after that first visit, I began playing the drums on the worship team, where I've continued to serve ever since.

This church has been an integral part of our lives. It is a place God has given us an opportunity to walk in our callings, and stretch us to serve a new levels of ministry. It is a place we have raised two children and have seen them grow and answer the call of God on their lives for ministry.

In 2017, I felt God stirring me to a deeper level of ministry. I began the process of getting my ministerial credentials and license, sensing that I would be serving Him someday full time. God had impressed on my heart to "redeem the time, because the days are evil." (Eph. 5:16) It was time to prepare and train myself to answer the call to teach and preach God's word. I have a passion for the word of God. I feel the call to infuse that passion to others, and be used to equip the body with the tools and techniques to effectively study and apply the word of God for themselves.

Birthday: June 6

Interests: Listening to music, reading, watching the Red Sox, listening to sermon podcasts, and spending time with family.

Books: Anything by Charles Spurgeon or Chuck Swindoll

Movies: Star Wars Episodes 1-6 (although Episode 4: A New Hope is the greatest movie of all time), Pirates of the Caribbean saga, Batman: The Dark Knight, Rocky 1-3, and It’s A Wonderful Life.

TV Shows: I’m not much of a TV person. I like old school stuff. The Honeymooners, 3 Stooges, and anything with Gordon Ramsey.

Sports Teams: The Boston Red Sox

Music: Music is my passion and in my DNA. Music was also what God used to reach and save me. I firmly believe what we listen to matters. I enjoy just about every genre of Christian music. I love worship music, gospel, anything Hillsong. I also love music with an edge. My favorite genre of music along with worship is Christian rock and Christian Metal. Disciple is my favorite band. Stryper, Deliverance, Whitecross, Petra, and Bloodgood are also my favorite go to’s.

Life Scripture: “He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things?” - Romans 8:32
