By Quentin Detillion '20 I grew up in Chillicothe and went to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I didn’t know what I wanted to do then, so I switched majors a couple of times before settling on business, and I graduated in business management. I went home and began working for my father’s landscape design and installation business that he’s had for forty years. While in school during summers, I worked for him doing hardscaping projects. I enjoyed building patios, pergolas, walls, and walkways. I did that for four years after graduation. My dad taught me the ropes, and people asked if

My quest ended in trusting Jesus Christ as my Savior, accepting His charge of my life and seeking His pleasure. I enrolled at Columbia Bible College in South Carolina. While studying the Bible, I was called to teach His Word to those who have no opportunity to study the Bible easily. I felt called to
