Jarrod Lynn: “I did not come to believe in Jesus Christ through a single miraculous event… Rather, my faith was forged with interrogations, investigations, and questions...” (Excerpt from school news article by Jarrod Lynn, printed April 2005: You Must Choose)

Susie Lynn: “Campus Ministry is really hard for me, but what’s even harder is thinking of all those students going through the best and worst times of their lives with no idea how much God loves them...and then not answering God’s call for me to help show them.” (Excerpt from Susie Lynn’s response when asked about her calling to college campus ministry.)
