1. When and how did you become Christian?

Bert Copple: "I became a Christian when I was a younger child. My father led me in the sinner’s prayer one night at church, and like most teens attending youth camps growing up, I probably rededicated my life to Christ a few hundred times."

2. How did becoming Christian change you?

Bert Copple: "To be honest, I can’t remember not being a Christian. I was raised both Roman Catholic and Pentecostal because my parents divorced when I was very young. Every other weekend was a religious culture clash, and I gained a great appreciation for both the traditional and the free flowing types of services and religious practices."

Bert Copple: "Personal and in-depth. I’m a pastor and chaplain, so if my relationship with Jesus isn’t right, I can’t effectively do my job."
