1. Where did you grow up?

My father was a church planter so I spent my early years on the campus of Golden Gate Theological Seminary and in Millbrae, California. We moved to Big Spring, Texas, when I was in junior high school and lived there until I left for college.

2. What is your favorite verse, book or story in the Bible? Why?

Psalm 91:1-2.

I have found this verse to express God’s protection and faithfulness to me, both of which I have experienced fully across almost 50 years of knowing him.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

“Chariots of Fire.”

It is based on the historical account of Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian, who ran for the glory of God, refused to compete on the Sabbath because of his convictions and won a gold medal in the 1924 Olympics. He chose God’s ways above all else, and I admire him.

4. Who are three people you admire?

William and Helen O’Dell (my parents), Thomas Helwys and Obadiah Holmes.

5. What is one little known fact about yourself?

I was a fencer in college.
