A Defining Moment

"In the Fall of 1973 I was on the Athletes in Action Weightlifting Team, a part of Campus Crusade for Christ, now Cru. It was an exciting time of evangelistic meetings, coaching clinics, and top level competition. As I saw people come to Christ and their pilgrimage of discipleship begin, I saw more clearly the potentials and challenges of the Christian Life. I knew that I needed more training if I wanted to be part of deeper Christian service. The pastor at the church I attended in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the team’s headquarters, recommended Western. June, 1974 was a pivotal month in my life. I married Collette on the 1st, competed in the National Weightlifting Championships on the 8th and started Western on the 24th. It has been a great adventure ever since."
