Logan & Kara Hershenow
I grew up going to church regularly with loving parents who continued to push me towards Christ. However, being the sinner I am, I was stubborn and stuck on worldly idols. I believed that I could fool those around me with my successes. I was motivated by success in all stages of life. It wasn’t until my junior year of high school that I really began to have a heart change towards the Lord. Fortunately the Lord used my baseball teammates and other friends to get me involved with a ministry called Young Life, and it was there where I began to understand what the Gospel really was.
I began my college years at Jefferson College where I quickly realized how important a community was, as I was surrounded by a lot of non-believers on the baseball team. A verse I began to cling to was Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” Fortunately baseball landed me at Eastern Kentucky University two years later where I was able to get plugged in with Campus Outreach. A man by the name of Blake Buckman began to show me what it looked like to be an unashamed believer of Jesus Christ and how to share my faith with others as he invested his time in me. I learned how to study scripture and invest time in friends and fellow students. Blake challenged me to live a more Christ centered life and showed me how to be a biblical man. My heart now goes out to all those students and athletes on the college campuses that do not know the Lord. I am praying that He will now move and use me to help impact others lives in the way that mine was and in the end build up laborers for Christ and His glory.
