Charles (Bud) Hill found God or rather was found by Him (Galatians 4:9) in Iran in 1973. The journey that took him to Iran continues to this day as his transformation from sinner to saint has gone beyond a search for meaning in life into living out the LIFE of Christ in us the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). The journey of his faith hasn’t been easy but it has been worth every sacrifice in becoming the spiritual athlete God has made him to be—pressing on for the goal of the high prize to which God has called him (Philippians 3:14). This journey of being called into God’s best has enabled him to enjoy living for Jesus no matter the circumstances and sharing his insights and truth with others along the way as they become athletes of the Spirit as well. Listening and encountering Bud as a speaking leader in CFO brings with it challenge, growth, humor, tears, compassion, guidance and direction for all those determined to follow Christ and find their identity and existence as they come more fully to move and have their being in Christ.
