Where you are from: Hmmm… born in Illinois, lived in Quebec since childhood for 39 years, in Schroon Lake since 2009.
The year you trusted Christ: I trusted Christ as my Saviour just before my 4th birthday and I’m still trusting Him today!
Favorite verse: It changes over the years as I grow in Christ. My current favorite is probably “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!” ~2 Corinthians 5:17
How you came to the Bible Institute: I attended the Bible Insitute in New York in 1981-82. It was an incredible year that lit a fire in my heart for the Word of God which has never died out. I then returned to Quebec, married my high school sweetheart, and we stepped right into full-time ministry in Christian media production combined with a part-time youth pastoral position in our local church. Over the subsequent years, I increasingly desired to see a Bible Institute program be made available to French youth in Quebec. In 1994, God opened the door for that to take place and I joined a small team that launched the first French WOLBI anywhere in the world. It was a joy to lead that program for the next 15 years, watching it grow from 8 to over 40 students. In 2009, the Lord led us to relocate to Schroon Lake to serve where God had done a great work in my own heart all those years ago. I have no problem being passionate about the BI because of the impact it had in my own life!
