Where you are from: Chicago

The year you trusted Christ: I came to Christ when I was 19 years old through the witness of a good friend and faithful ministry of my first pastor.  I was diligently discipled by my youth pastor which was key in helping my faith take root in my life.

Favorite verse: “Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead” ~Philippians 3:13

How you came to the Bible Institute: My Youth Pastor was a previous graduate of the Bible Institute and was instrumental in encouraging me to go.
