I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior at a very early age due to the strong influence of my godly parents and local church. My childhood faith was strengthened during high school and later at the Air Force Academy because of spiritual mentors who personally invested in me.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity for OCF?
You, our members. OCF’s best asset continues to be the individuals who engage the military society around them in Christlike service. We must continue to effectively use our conference centers, local Bible studies, and leadership training efforts to influence our commissioning sources and faithfully grow and sustain our members while they integrate faith, family, and profession throughout their military careers.
