I became a Christian my freshman year at what was then Fresno Pacific College. It was the genuine faith of students, faculty and staff (notably my Bible and Spanish teacher, Leslie Mark) that persuaded me.
My sophomore year, I met a new transfer student, Sonya Kriegbaum, who I married my junior year. By my senior year, as I was already an interim pastor.
Suffice to say the school changed my life, I was grounded in faith, and captivated by the Kingdom, during my four years of living on campus. I am still living off of that profound encounter to this day.
