How did you come to be involved with CCH/campus ministry?
I first came to CCH in 1984 as a student looking for a place to live, but with a greater need of becoming committed to Jesus. Initially more attracted to the students than the ministry, change came and I discovered a hunger and passion for the life of a disciple. Feeding that passion led to the discovery of God’s calling on my life for ministry. More recently I returned to CCH in 2004 to work as a campus minister and to begin the transition to director of CCH.
