Up until my junior year in college church was barely on my radar. Then I met a campus missionary at Michigan State who made a huge impact on my life. Eventually, I started to see my peers and their need for Christ, and I realized I could give up the comforts of a cubicle career for something far greater, seeing college students become followers of Christ.
