Hometown: Pinehurst, NC
Why he’s at PAYH: Chris struggled with frequently turning to drugs and alcohol, which led him to make unwise decisions. He often disobeyed authority and got in fights with his parents.
Turning Point: Chris has had tremendous spiritual growth through the memory work and Bible studies taught four times a week at the Paul Anderson Youth Home. He has learned a lot about the Bible and it has brought him closer to God.
What are you most looking forward to about the Bike Ride?
He has never been to the Florida Keys, so Chris is excited about being able to start there and biking over 650 miles to Vidalia, Ga.
“It is amazing to see how much I have grown physically here. I could not run every day like I can now. I have even started to fall in love with running.”
