Biography: I am from the Los Angeles area. I have been a Christian for eight years and thank the Lord that He also saved my three younger sisters. Currently, I am majoring in Political Science at UCLA and hope to attend seminary afterwards. I am also a Marine veteran of Iraq. Lord willing, I desire to marry my girlfriend Nancy and to serve God as a pastor in the future. I thank God for my pastor’s discipling of me not only in apologetics but also in character. My church, a Chinese and English Congregration, has been such a blessing to me.
|The Third Prize winner is Jeremy Larson.
Biography: I grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where I attended Bob Jones Academy for two years. I matriculated at Bob Jones University and majored in Creative Writing and minored in English. In 2005, I began working on my M.A. in English. Kara and I were married on June 3, 2006, and that fall I began teaching high school English at an AACS school in Charleston, South Carolina. This past summer Kara began Physician Assistant school at the Medical University of South Carolina, and I completed my master’s degree. I began coaching soccer this year and have enjoyed getting back into sports. It’s fun to tell people that I’m contemplating working on a Ph.D. in English, and I am, but right now I’m quite satisfied with the ministry God has given me. My dad, now the supervisor of secondary authors at Bob Jones University Press, has been a special encouragement in worldview issues.
