Hey! My name is Ben Michaels, and I am from Carter Lake, IA.  

I'm a Junior here at OCC and I am studying preaching.  I didn't always want to be a preacher. In fact, when I was little, we joked that I was going to be a preacher because I thought they only worked one day a week!  In reality, I had no idea what I wanted to be as I grew up.  The harder I tried to plan and dream, the more pathetic my plans seemed in comparison to God's imagination.  Did I really want to live for just a paycheck? Did I really want to live for just a trophy? Was I defined by a major or a job title? So I gave up on my plans. And when I was 16, I prayed a prayer. I prayed, "God, use Your imagination on me." I'm not much. I like telling stories and talking to people, so I guess that means I could be a preacher.  So why am I at Ozark? Because through financial aid, mentors, and campus visits, I felt God's imagination leading me here to a Bible College in Jopin, MO.  So here's my question: where is God's imagination taking you?
