Crecí escuchando grandes predicaciones acerca de la santidad por parte de mi padre y héroe, el Dr. Gene Fuller. Me senté bajo la predicación santa y ungida del Dr. Paul Cunningham mientras era estudiante en la Universidad Nazarena MidAmerica. Y experimenté de forma personal la gracia santificadora de Dios cuando abracé su llamado para predicar acerca de la santidad mientras me encontraba bajo la tutela de grandes eruditos de la santidad tales como Purkiser, Greathouse y Deasley cuando asistí al Seminario Teológico Nazareno de Kansas City.
