Don has recently joined the staff as a Minister of Outreach at Bonhomme Presbyterian Church, a nearly 200 year-old church in the western suburbs of St. Louis, MO. Don enjoys Frisbee Golf and eating cheap pizza. Don’s newest book, I Once Was Lost , examines how skeptics in our postmodern world find Jesus.
