He writes: I was a committed worship attender but did not experience my personal conversion until my freshman year at the US Naval Academy. For the first time in my life I felt very alone and unconfident in my ability to “handle things on my own.” In October of that year, I was walking near Baltimore Harbor when I heard Jesus whisper, “You’ve not alone. You’ve never been alone. I’ve always been here with you. Let me be your Savior and I’ll become your best friend.” God began working on my heart that day (justifying and sanctifying grace setting in at once!) and I soon felt a call to ministry. After 7 years on active duty in the US Navy, I answered that call to ministry.
