Mike Long is a native of Durham, North Carolina where he still resides with wife Libby and their two children. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mike served as a legislative assistant in the United States Senate. He then became a teacher in the Durham Public Schools.
Mike is one of the pioneers of the abstinence education movement. In 1986, he obtained a grant from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Resources to develop an abstinence education strategy to teach in the local schools. This strategy is called “directive education.” He then became a National Consultant for Project Reality conducting in-service trainings for over 23,000 educators in 43 states how to effectively teach character education in their classroom.
Mike has spoken at thousands of parent-teen conferences, community programs, schools assemblies, and youth rallies nationwide. His approach has proven quite effective for those he reaches. He has also appeared on many radio and television news shows and he has produced many successful television specials...
When it comes to teenagers and sex, I know of no one better to address such a highly sensitive issue in such an effective way than Mike Long. That is why I call on him regularly to appear on my radio program. Mike's experience in the field of abstinence education and his unique style of communicating to both teens and parents is simply outstanding and inspiring. His directive teaching and parenting techniques outlined in his "Everyone Is NOT Doing It" program gives us the tools we need to direct our kids to embrace God's plan for sex within marriage. It is vitally important that the Christian community step forward in promoting sexual abstinence until marriage as the standard for our nation's youth. That is why it is with complete confidence and great sincerity; I recommend churches, Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and youth organizations bring Mike Long in to help achieve this important goal.
