LTC Greg and LTC Lucy Lane, USAR (Ret.)
Greg and Lucy are the OCF Associate Field Staff representatives for ROTC. Greg, an Army ROTC graduate from The Citadel in Charleston, SC, and Lucy, an Army ROTC graduate from Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, TN, are Christians, having accepted Christ in high school. Both are Lieutenant Colonels retired from the U.S. Army Reserve, each with over 12 years active duty and an equal or greater number of years with the USAR, holding positions from platoon leader to staff college instructor, and serving both stateside and overseas.
On this page, you’ll find ROTC resources, information about the RMH leadership program, and OCF ROTC fellowship groups around the country. If you have an ROTC group that isn’t listed, contact Laura Kalinus in Member Services and let her know.
Col Darren Duke, USMC, talks about personal transformation and what a life transformed by God might look like for believers serving in the military.
To be a leader God can use, three things must happen: We must have faith in something that is worthy of our faith; we must know who we are in Christ; and we must be prepared to fight the good fight, as we engage in spiritual warfare.
Christian leader, the narrow road of discipleship—a road the Lord travels with us—is full of unexpected, difficult turns. Prepare earnestly, lead well. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
When commissioned at an OCF bar-pinning ceremony twenty years ago, I was ready to take on the world, but acutely aware I knew little about leadership and military service! Through mistakes and the Lord’s patient refinement, I learned that the Bible is the greatest leadership manual ever written, but we must apply its timeless truths to the circumstances of our lives.
The godly leader is indeed a powerful witness for Christ. When we follow Christ's example—and let Him take the reins of our leadership—we will experience a calling that is fulfilling beyond measure, and one in which the results are undeniable.
Before Army ROTC cadets can be commissioned as second lieutenants, they must successfully complete what is now known as the Leader Development and Assessment Course (LDAC), a training event developing their leadership skills while evaluating their officer potential. Once held at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington, LDAC —Warrior Forge—now takes place at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
If you are ready to be challenged, inspired, and renewed in your faith, then join us in Colorado for Rocky Mountain High—a unique program designed primarily for cadets, midshipmen, and junior officers who are about to begin careers leading the nation’s military.
