Major: 10
My name is Micah Green, and I'm on the Campus Crusade Togetherness team this year (I help to lead our Tuesday meetings, speak, lead discussions, etc.). I'm really excited to be a part of what God is doing at MIT, and I'm so thankful that God called me to be His child even though there's nothing I can do to deserve His love. I hail from the great state of Texas, where I grew up in a strong church with very godly parents. Although I can't remember a time when I didn't believe in God, I do remember feeling God's sovereign call on my life on September 10, 1986 at the age of 7 as I heard about the death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ. That night, I prayed that God would forgive me and that He would become my Lord, the "boss" of my life. However, I don't think I really grasped the beauty and wonder of God until I was 15. I went to a Promise Keepers rally in Colorado with my father, and it was amazing, standing there signing God's praises with 70,000 other men. I realized then that the only true happiness in life comes from knowing and glorifying God, so I committed myself to becoming a godly man like my dad, who loves God and treasures Him above all else.

Since then, God has given me a special desire to study and teach His Word, the Bible. He has also given me a passion for defending the Christian faith through science and reason and showing others that our pursuit of truth and meaning must lead us to Christ. I am continually amazed at how we can see the evidence of God in science because His creativity and design is obvious. More importantly, God has revealed Himself to us in history through His Son, Jesus Christ, and showed us how much He loves and cares for us. I am convinced that every human being does have meaning and purpose, and that purpose is found by joyfully turning to the one who purposed us, the God of the universe. The Westminster Shorter Catechism says, "The chief end of man is to love God and enjoy Him forever." That is our purpose, and that where happiness is ultimately found.
