Charles Harrington

I first "heard" the Gospel in graduate school. I was born and raised in a Catholic home, but never really understood what it meant. As an undergraduate, I majored in Philosophy and Mathematics. I studied the world "religions," looking for something to soothe my desire to know the "Big Why." Since surrenduring my live to Christ, I have a desire to know and do His will for my life.
