I suspect most of us would name parents or spouse first, and that is good, but I’m looking for the person outside your family who has influenced you the most–and why.
For me, it would be Larry Fryer (he currently preaches for the Lord’s church in Monroe, GA). He opened my eyes to possibilities I had never considered before 14 years ago. Consequently, he changed my life for good in a radical way. I’m a preacher today because of Larry.
If you’re interested, I’ve written more about my influences here:
I look forward to reading your posts!
