Stories of God at Work

Joe Trujillo grew up in a dysfunctional family with alcoholic parents and as a young man ended up in prison with 5 felonies. Feeling utterly hopeless, Joe remembers, "I fell to my knees and cried out to God" one night in my cell. God set him free that night as the words of the Bible came to life in his heart.

DeHaan quickly captured the attention of listeners in the Detroit area, and eventually the nation. Since then, our audience has grown to millions of people around the world who use our Bible-based resources.
