It wasn’t our first HIM conference. When we went in 2010, we were in one of the general sessions. We had been talking the whole time – and my husband Rich was very excited about the offerings in the breakouts.
We came into the last General Session and Dan did an altar call. Rich had been listening intently to the speaker, and then Dan came up and spoke about God’s Presence in our lives. Dan said that all of us could have more of God's Presence if we just invited Him into our hearts, and then invited everyone to make a commitment if they wanted to.
Rich got down on his knees, and then I went down with him, and he prayed quietly and rededicated his life to Christ. He said, “I want more. I am seeing what more is, and I want more.” That act, that decision in that moment made him more committed to going to church and serving the church. He formerly served out of duty, but then he began serving out of his heart for what God had blessed him with.
