Two Bible verses that have had a significant impact in his life are John 17:3 and John 12:24. These passages have helped in providing the much needed relational and ministerial focus of knowing God in an experiential way as well as the imperative Christ-like virture of humilty so Christ may produce His life and salvation in others.
