Why Ministry? I accepted the Lord as my Savior as an 8 year old after an AWANA meeting at my church. When I was 16 I attended a camp meeting (Camp Chetek in Chetek, WI) where I heard a clear message from Matthew 9:36-38 on the need for more laborers. I sensed the Spirit's urging and I surrendered that night to His call. From then on I have pursued God's will for my life.
Favorite Verse: Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it. I Thessalonians 5:24
