What brought you to ACP? Before I came to Paris, I searched for churches in town on the internet and I discovered ACP. Once in Paris, I decided one Sunday to visit the 1:30 PM service, and then I stayed and ACP became my new home, my new wonderful church.

Why do you serve as a Young Adult leader? To share and give back, as I have received a lot from ACP. It is also a way for me to serve Christ more actively and to honor his calling.
