I grew up in a loving Christian family and church. I accepted Christ at a young age; however, when I went to college I fell away from the Lord in the first year. By His grace, I was drawn back and recommitted my life to Christ my sophomore year. I have been involved in lay ministry through OCF and CRU ever since.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity for OCF?
Relationships will always be central to OCF ministry. Drawing a connection and building trust help forge the relationships that allow OCF to fulfill its mission of engaging and equipping military leaders for Christlike service. Interestingly, the next generation uses digital media as a natural means to build relationships. I believe OCF can reach these digital natives with greater impact by strategically leveraging social media platforms and smartphone apps.
