My home church, Presbyterian Church of the Master started partnering with Crossroads around 2006. I was invited to attend a Sunday evening worship by my friend, Dave Kellogg, who was transporting inmates to and from OCC in the transit bus that night. I was moved by the unbridled joy and passion with which the inmates exuded during worship that night. I felt as though I had been ministered to by them. When the opportunity was presented to me to serve on this board, I felt a nudge from Jesus to serve the organization in whatever way I can to continue to help this very important ministry thrive.
