Michael Šust is the founding pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel St. Louis. He had a life-saving encounter with Christ during his escape from communism in 1986. Shortly thereafter he came to the United States to start a new life. In 1991, he left his opera singing career and embraced vocational ministry. For sixteen years, he served as a worship pastor and evangelist in various Christian churches in Massachusetts, Texas, and Missouri. In September 2006, Michael met Pastor James MacDonald and, at his prompting, responded to the call to plant Harvest St. Louis in partnership with Harvest Bible Fellowship.
Michael enjoys classical singing and tennis. He is married to Colleen, his love and wife of twenty-eight years; they live in Wildwood, MO. They have two daughters, Annie (married to Nate, granddaughters Alina and April) and Christy.
