I became a Christian... on May 14, 1967 at Ryan Road Baptist Church in Warren, Michigan. I loved going to church from the time I was two years old, but I became keenly aware of my need for a Savior when I was twelve.
Easter Sunday, 1977, was my first time to attend CrossPoint, formerly Central Baptist Church. Pastor Bruce Melton brought us out with him from Michigan to work with the youth when he took over the pastorate.
