Gabe and IKen Stoll  

Jesus-follower even when I don’t feel like one. Father. Writer. Average Golfer. Loyal Detroit Tigers fan. Recovering self-help junkie. Beggar letting others know where to find bread. Currently seeking an agent for my book; “The Blue Jean Gospel”: Unimaginable news for the rest of us—not so typical thoughts on Christian spirituality.

My favorite meal would consist of a juicy rib-eye, lobster tail drenched in butter, tasty salad drowning in blue cheese dressing, baked potato smothered with sour cream, pint of Guinness, and some kind of decadent dessert made with dark chocolate.  

My education includes being a graduate of Christ For The Nations Bible Institute in Dallas, Texas—where I studied theology, world missions, youth ministry, and pastoral counseling and leadership.  I am a former youth pastor as well as conference speaker and director.  Currently, I write and reside in Rochester Hills and attend Kensington Community Church in neighboring Troy, Michigan.

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.  -Acts 20:24
