I was raised in a Christian home and expressed my faith in Jesus as a child. But it was not until my student days at the University of Oregon that I entered into a more personal with God. This was due in large part to the influence of a fraternity brother, Bill Hansell, who was active with the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. It was the late sixties and a time of radical student activism which included protest marches, demonstrations, and sit-ins. Everyone was seeking a worthy cause to which to devote their lives. After much thought and reflection, I concluded that the only cause worthy of lifetime commitment was helping others find peace with God through the Good News of the Bible. It was during my college years that I became a serious-minded follower of Jesus. During my junior year at the University of Oregon, I began to sense God’s leading to Christian service and enrolled at Western Seminary after graduating from the University of Oregon.
