“Go on an Adventure with God!” These were the words I spoke with conviction and fervor during my graduation speech from Arlington Baptist. As I reflect over my life before, during, and after attending college, I realize that I had been going on adventures with God before even giving the speech.  

You see, high school was hard. Even harder, was knowing that the Lord had called me to follow Him on to the mission field, yet I continually doubted myself. My conversations with God would go something like this:

Me: “I’m not good enough.”

God: “No you are not ...

About ten years ago, I began a journey that would take me from where I thought I was going to where God would send me. I have to admit that not all of the journey seemed to make sense, nor were some of the events along the way all that enjoyable. When I look back and reflect, it would appear that everything (whether it seemed good or bad) was God’s way of preparing me for what is to come. During the process, I made some great friends that God used to influence my life. And, I lost a ...

My name is Kody Kirk, and I graduated ABC in 2015. I came into the college not knowing hardly anything about the Bible and getting saved just 5 months prior. I was overwhelmed and scared out of my mind coming into a place where kids grew up in church and the only thing I knew about church was Wednesday Youth service there was free food.  So I jumped on that bandwagon.

After 4 years (maybe 5) From late night bible studies, crying sessions, and the worst wifi in the world, I graduated. I am eternally grateful for ABC and how ...
