  1. Share your testimony. How did God draw you to faith in Christ?
    I grew up in a religious home. When we could not get to church because of the weather, we always gathered in our living room to say the Rosary. When I went to college, I met a number of people who were talking about God and sharing the Scripture verses they were memorizing. I had never heard of memorizing Scripture. That intrigued me, so I got involved. I memorized as many verses as I could. I grew in knowledge greatly over the next nine months. I went on a ski trip to Colorado. While there, we had the privilege of hearing a man share his testimony. What caught my attention was when he shared Revelations 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and have fellowship with him, and he will me.” At that point, I knew I needed to make a decision, which I did. I grew slowly in my spiritual life, but I grew.

  2. Why do you want to be a Deacon?
    Over the last 10 years, I have had multiple strokes and cancer. Up until that point, I was simply sliding along. I realized, then, I had to make a choice. Part of the change in me is that I started asking people how I could pray for them. I started with the healthcare professionals who were working with me. I quit counting after I passed 50 such conversations. This mentality has expanded into other areas of life. My wife, Cheryl, and I have looked for ways in which we can come alongside others.

  3. Where is your passion to serve people?
    So many people just simply desire to have a good word said to them. It never fails to amaze me how encouraged a person may be by a simple word of encouragement.
