Call to Ministry:
After graduating high school in 1993, I headed off to Columbus, Ohio to make my way in the world. Instead of taking education seriously, I applied myself to “fitting in.” After a dismal attempt at doing life my own way, I moved home in 1995. I job jumped until I landed on summer staff in 1997 at Camp Aldersgate. During the summer of 1998 I had an experience that changed my life. During an event I dreamed up, I noticed that every single camper and staff member was smiling. Many of the same people the night before had made a commitment to follow Jesus after sharing stories of pain and suffering like nothing I had experienced. In that moment, I re-committed my life to Christ and promised Him He could use me forever to reach people far from Him.
