August 6, 2013

By Steve Colangelo

I am going to take a break from my regular bible teaching column this week and become a bit personal.

I’ve been in the ministry for over 25 years and I’ve been a member of IFCA for most of those years.

The duo will travel a route used by “Race Across America” during bicycle treks.
