On His Call to Ministry:

"My time at East Carolina University really shaped my call to ministry. An InterVarsity staff worker poured into my life every week and encouraged me to consider ministry in the future. I decided to take a step of faith and serve as an interim youth minister one summer in college. From then on I couldn't imagine doing anything else!"
